On April 28th, eleven determined canoeists set out from Adel, Iowa on the North Raccoon River for a Saturday of relaxation. A leisurely pace was set in order to make the short trip to Van Meter as long as possible. The day was relatively uneventful until our crew stopped on a sandbar about one-hour north of Van Meter for a mass clam hunt.
