Hi, my name is Abigail Prom and I am 20 months old. This picture was taken on Easter.

Paddle? We just had a baby

    As an outfitter we hear lots of reasons why people aren´t taking a canoe trip this year. One we hear quite often is that, "we just had a baby." Well we had a baby last November and did not want this to keep us from taking a canoe trip this season. We thought Abigail would enjoy herself and it turned out to be an awesome experience for all of us. Although taking an infant on a trip may not be for everyone there are a few things that can make the experience easier.

Here are some things we did to paddle with Abby...
  • We sat her in a Rubbermaid container to keep her dry and somewhat immobile. It also allowed her to sit up with her life vest on.
  • We had her get used to wearing her lifevest around the house prior to the trip.
  • We tied toys to the side of the canoe so when she did decide to throw them overboard they were not lost forever.
  • We kept snacks and beverages handy.
  • We kept portages to a minimum and paddling time short to keep her interested.
  • We brought along extra paddlers to help out. A grandma does wonders in the middle of the canoe.
  • Use all other paddling common sense and wear hats, sunscreen, bug repellant and netting.
