Default You Must Be Kidding...

Wow! Pierre, SD?? I'm married to a South Dakota girl, an I know a bit about Pierre. It's hardly a place that could make a successful excursion boat location. It's the state capitol of South Dakota, but it has a population of only 14,000, and it's located 30 miles north of the main tourist thoroughfare, Interstate 90. It has a tourist trade at the capitol building and grounds, and there is a convention business there that might be looking for a new activity, but there is a short season for any boat rides. The high plains are notoriously windy, and there is often white caps on the Missouri River, even on lazy summer days. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this is a silly April Fool's joke! Just my views as an outsider looking in...
