Paddling Trips:

Below are some links to videos of paddling destinations/trips; primarily of waterways in Illinois and Wisconsin for the moment. Tom Lindblade has created some wonderful videos accompanied by historical commentary. Even if you're already familiar with the waterway, I highly recommend viewing for the historical perspective Tom provides.

If you are looking to tune up your skills or learn something new, then head on over to the instructional videos section. There are some really excellent videos here -the instructors that made these have done a really good job displaying/explaining the proper techniques.

Video: Blackwell FP - Warrenville, IL
Description: Silver Lake is a fairly small lake, if you are more than a beginner you can do the circumference a few times to get a good work out. Despite being fairly small it is big enough to have about 3 distinct sections making it more explorable than a simple round lake.

For renters, they appear to have a nice selection of kayaks and canoes.

There is a put-in fee of $9 for non-residents.
Location/Distance: Silver Lake, IL, USA
