I originally wanted to start from Lakehead on the first day, Saturday, paddle 20 miles to the Shasta Dam, then portage the kayak to the bottom of the Dam and sleep there before day 2.

After a few phone calls today to the board of regulation, I was told that the access to the bottom of the Shasta Dam is prohibited due to the Coronavirus.

No way to put in there anymore. I could put further down river but on foot with the kayak on wheels, it would be too far.

Had to change plans and now will take off from Redding.
