110000 CFS, dog paddling, and East Shore

With the flooding situation, the closest place for me to paddle is the east shore access on Lake Oahe. On my way up to east shore, I swung by the stilling basin to check out the water.

This is what ~110,000 cfs looks like; the remaining 40,000 cfs is coming through the power plant.

At east shore, I initially tried to work with Indy on the Current Designs Storm GT. It did not work too well. I did get him to sit still for a bit, but it won't work for a downriver cruise. My options are the tandems or to find a canoe. I prefer the canoe idea for hauling camping gear and the dog someday.
