It was a beautiful day on the Blue Juniata!
Since nobody wanted to do a river trip I did my test ride on my new Torrent at Howe Park.
I went up to the ledge above Howe Park.
The water was too low for a Juniata shuttle trip but the Susquehanna would have been good.
Now I need to take a short easy trip of about 3 to 5 miles with no rough water.
I am having a little trouble with my back on this boat.
Maybe if I get the back strap adjusted better it will improve.
I donít know if I can take whirlpools or waves yet.
This boat is much different than anything I ever paddled before.
The water level was about 3.22 feet at Newport.
The trip took about 1.5 hours.
The water temperature was about 27 degrees celsius.
