Dreaming of Water Trails in December.

Wow! It’s December already, and December again—

“Already” because 2014 has flown by. And “Again” because this is our third December issue of the IWTA Newsletter.

Our first issue was July 2012, which means that we have been bringing you info, ideas, and insight about Iowa Water Trails for 2 1/2 years. We hope that you have enjoyed the journey as much as we have.

Our growth to over 1100 subscribers indicates that we are doing something right, but we always welcome your comments and suggestions on how we can make this newsletter more valuable to you. Please keep us informed via email at: iowawta@gmail.com

For a hardy few, paddling in Iowa is a year-round activity. Those hardy few have learned a lot about dealing with a mixture of water and ice, proper gear, proper planning, and safety in numbers. If you think this challenge might be for you, we highly recommend that you visit with experienced paddlers through a full-service paddling shop, or experienced members of groups like Central Iowa Paddlers, Skunk River Paddlers, or Cedar Valley Paddlers.

Please be careful out there, and we’ll look forward to visiting with you at the paddling shows during January, February, and March.
