INDIANA PADDLERS RENDEZVOUS 2006
This weekend past, 100+paddlers from Indiana and surrounding states gathered at Wildcat Park in Laffeyette for the 2006 version of the INDIANA PADDLER'S RENDEZVOUS.
Three fabulous days of paddling Wildcat Creek, camping, swapping stories, and making new friends.
Besides the paddling, the highlight of the weekend was Garry "Muskrat" Hill's Saturday night Chili dinner, and the charity auction that followed. A great time was had by all!

Garry "Muskrat" Hill did a terrific job organizing the event, not to mention cooking a mean pot of chili!
We made some terrific new friends!

Love the van!
I love the van too, wow and you sure seem to know how to have a good time. I felt hungry after looking at your photos! As if i just had all the outdoors myself.
Looks like you are having a wonderful summer,

nd - yes, always better on the water! But then again, a lot of things are!
wc - BOTH! And welcome back!
Candy - ditto! I feel guilty I have kinda been lax not only blogging, but visiting my friends blogs. Been such a busy summer!
Just spent a few glorious weeks down your way (OK at least south) and a heckuva time paddling in Oregon.
Our Van looks positively futuristic compared to yours (85 Westy)...beauty way to go.
