Trekalong Visits Ohio River Paddlefest 2013!


This past weekend, we at Trekalong tagged along with the folks at Wilderness Press & Menasha Ridge Press as they set up camp at the 12th annual Ohio River Paddlefest. This was an exciting trip for me because it marked the first time I utilized the Riverside Dr./Kellogg Ave. route from Downtown Cincinnati to Coney Island (where the Paddlefest party rages). And, while we were quite busy chattin’ it up with Wilderness, Menasha, and all the other Cincinnati-based outdoor vendors, we did manage to snap a few photos along the way. Check’m out!
