Greetings from Mighty Mo Canoe Rental!
We are pleased to accept
your reservation. We will depart at 1 p.m. sharp from the
Katy Trail Bed &
Bikefest, located at 101 Lewis Street in Rocheport, Missouri 65279 (see
directions here). You may park in our parking area, or on the shoulder
of the road.
Please arrive no later
than 12:45 a.m.
Plan to bring sunscreen,
sunhat, sunglasses, and something to drink (like water or Gatorade) and
snacks. Conditions at times can be very hot.
Please be sure to wear
shoes that can get a little muddy or wet. River sandals and old tennis shoes
work well. Crocks, flip-flops, and backless sandals are not appropriate.
We may be stopping to
splash around a bit at one of the sandbars so it would be a good idea to
wear your swim suit or shorts that can get wet.
The float can be
rigorous (if there's a headwind) and somewhat removed from immediate medical
assistance, please advise us and plan accordingly.
Participants should be
in fairly good physical condition, and should be able to support their own
body weight when getting in and out of canoes. Participants should also be
able to walk up steep, rocky embankments getting to and from the river.
If participants are over
250 pounds, please let us know in advance.
If you are a diabetic or
have any medical conditions that may need to be addressed in the course of
this 4-5 hour float trip please bring medications or snacks as needed.
Please plan to leave all
cell phones, watches, jewelry, electronic gear and valuables at home or in
your car. If you bring a camera, consider bringing a disposable waterproof
camera. We recommend you bring a dry bag or sealed waterproof container to
keep items dry.
We depart at 1 p.m. to
allow you time to eat lunch in Rocheport at one of the various restaurants
that offer everything from hamburgers & fries (Trailside Cafe located at the
Katy Trail Trailhead), or more upscale items at Abigail's Restaurant. Please
for a complete listing.
We generally shuttle
people back to Rocheport after our float. However, you can also choose to
bike back to Rocheport (45 minute easy flat ride) on the Katy Trail. It is a
real pretty stretch of trail. If you would like for us to shuttle your bikes
down to the end of the float, please drop your bikes off at the Katy Trail
Bed & Bikefest at 101 Lewis Street, Rocheport, MO 65279, no later than 10
a.m. Also, if you would be kind enough to reply to this email that you're
biking back that would streamline our planning. (If you want to bike back
but can't be here by 10 a.m. please email us so that we can work something
If you need to rent a
bike, please call Trailside Cafe & Bike Rental at (573) 698-2702.
Some general rules of
thumb regarding weather cancellations: if there is a 50% or greater chance
of thunderstorms IN ROCHEPORT (ZIP 65279), after 1 p.m., we will cancel our
float. Don't check KC or St. Louis weather - CHECK Rocheport's weather -
since it will be different.

Also - if the river is
above 18 feet on the local Boonville gauge, we may cancel the float.
You can watch the river level fluctuate in real-time at
note that the river level updates throughout the week - and I typically
don't cancel a float until about 2 days before the float, since the
forecasts here fluctuate wildly daily.
If you are planning an
overnight stay in Rocheport, please visit
The Katy Trail Bed &
Bikefest is a cozy 1880s historic house located right on the Katy Trail!
