    What do you consider to be the prowess level for this outing? Is it Easy, moderate, or ‘really need to have been doing this for years’ level? Thank you!

      Oops; missed seeing your question until just now.
      This is an easy paddle, no current, no shoals, no rush.
      But it will be cold tomorrow morning: low of 32F tonight and high of 50 tomorrow.
