Steelville MO is known as the FLOATING capitol of Missouri and has many outfitters that offer campgrounds for 10$ and a variety of different floats ,from canoeing,kayaking and rubber tires , they would drop you at the entry spot and bring you back from the finish spot.
We phoned a few outfitters and chose the one that was flexible more than the others , owns the place and was most friendly on the phone, our gut feelings proved us right and Claude was very accommodating and suggested us to use 2 personal canoes and so we did.
The whole trip was around 5 miles long and as the river was in most places “slow” it took us 4 hours including a short break we took on a sandy bank to grab a sandwich.
Close to the end to the float there was suddenly a fast current that we took well but missed a huge tree that fell (long time ago)from the bank and was under water and this two things together made us flip over, that it self was not a problem but my cellphone got wet and so are the pictures I took during this day (I was more concerned bring my camera and that was a good decision) .
I am still working on the cell phone,it is not completed died and it makes some survival sounds, but till then –no pictures.
All in all we had a wonderful day and will sure be doing it again shortly.
