Oahe Marina to Antelope Creek to Farm Island

I took Team Nautical But Nice on a 20+ mile training cruise on May 12. We started off with breakfast at Oahe Marina, then began the cruise. We kayaked down to Antelope Creek, then back up to the Farm Island boat ramp in Hipple Lake. We covered 22.4 miles.

Lake Francis Case - Dude Ranch to Snake Creek to Platte Creek

Well, I am going to try to catch up on a few blog posts. If you have been following the Pirates of the Missouri Facebook page, I have been posting my trips there over the past couple of months.

Doc Savage, Nancy Smidt, Matt Story, Steve Story, Roger Debates, Kati Albers, and David Mays joined me for a training cruise for the SDKC and MR340 over the April 28/29. We met at the Snake Creek Recreation Area on Friday, April 27. We camped there Friday and Saturday night. We shuttled to Oacoma/Dude Ranch on Saturday and Platte Creek Rec Area on Sunday. Saturday ended up being 12.5 hours on the water for 38.1 miles. Sunday was 9.4 miles.
