In the Wild with Greg Wagner


LET’S GO “TANKING!” by Greg Wagner

Floated the scenic Elkhorn River in western Douglas County for a short distance in a livestock tank today for a neat piece we’re doing on “tanking” Nebraska rivers this Thursday, May 6th at 6.p.m. during sports on WOWT-TV/Channel 6 in Omaha, NE. Look for replays of the outdoor report segment on www.wowt.com  Ross Jernstrom, Caitlin Roth and myself, enjoyed a fun, relaxing river float trip on a beautiful day with Steve and Jill Evers who own and operate Tank Down the Elkhorn at http://www.TankDown.com  Check out the pics!

“Tanking” as it is referred to has turned into a very popular water-based outdoor recreational activity here in Nebraska for all ages to enjoy! Outfitters on five rivers here in the state (Elkhorn, Middle Loup, Calamus, Niobrara and Cedar) offer tank trips. Go here for river outfitter info: http://www.ngpc.state.ne.us/boating/guides/canoetrails/canoeintro.pdf  I blogged about tanking this past summer:  https://inthewildwithwags.wordpress.com/2009/07/31/the-other-float-trip-tanking/

See you out there, kicking back in a livestock tank floating on one of Nebraska’s many fine rivers like the Elkhorn! I may or may not be paddling, ha!
