Norman Hande, Carsten Bjornstad, John Hanson and Ed Huseby practiced their canoeing strokes earlier this month in a small body of water known locally as Just Slough. It's one of the small lakes the four men will paddle across as they attempt to traverse the county's northern lakes and river in one day. About a third of the 30-mile adventure will involve portaging the canoe down the road. (Tribune photo by Carolyn Lange)
