Jeff and I paddle to Red Wing together then meet Bill at the boat ramp. I load my canoe into his truck and we head to his new house in Cannon Falls about 20 miles away. The difference between the river sights and the rows of farmland and limestone hills just a few miles off is quite stark. The river somewhat separates me from the surrounding scene. At Bill's we start with a side-by-side tour of his 14 acres then go out for a ride in his Slingshot, a 2.4l engine in a 1700lb three wheeler. It's fun as hell!
