Is there an owner of a Northstar Polaris or a Wenonah Escapade in northern Illinois who would be willing to allow my wife and I to test paddle your canoe?

We live in LaGrange, IL, and would be willing to take a day trip to meet you. The local canoe dealer in Lake Bluff, IL, won't be scheduling test paddles until May, but they have only 1 Polaris and no Escapades.

Hello neighbor
I have a Polaris and live in Lemont. I paddle the Deplanes River frequently. One of my normal put in is just upstream of Rt83. A nice couple hour paddle is up to Lagrange Rd and back. Best done when the wind is low. Let me know when you have time and we can see if our schedules will match. I can bring along a solo canoe for me.

Thank you for your kind offer! I will speak with my wife and let you know. We are retired, so our availability depends mostly upon the weather.
