Refreshing Getaways on TV

The school year starts soon and if you’re looking for a refreshing family getaway, I’ll have some options for you on my weekly TV outdoor report. Here’s a hint, we’re going paddling!

kayakingSandhillsRivers

I’ll be encouraging you to check out the rivers least paddled, least floated in the central Nebraska Sandhills area. Rivers like the Calamus, North Loup, Cedar and Middle Loup offer nice scenery, interesting wildlife, solitude, spring-fed water, a gentle current and not overly deep water. They are ideal for a day or day and half paddling trip. River outfitters and rentals are available!

See me kayaking one of these neat rivers on my Weekly Outdoor Report that airs LIVE on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News Thursday evening at 6 p.m. CST during the sportscast with either Ross Jernstrom or Jeff Packer.

If you’re unable to view our live broadcast, video replays of the outdoor report can be seen after the initial cast at this link. The report can also be accessed on Digital Channel 6.2 and Cox Cable Channel 120. Additionally, WOWT 6 runs it on Saturdays later in its hour-long 8 a.m. CST newscast. Thanks for watching!
