New York was the host of the kickoff for the annual Susquehanna Sojourn, a weeklong canoe trip that ran June 21-29 and was designed to draw attention to the Susquehanna River and its tributaries. This year's event, "The Chenango Tango," which covered 98 miles, started in the Chenango River in Sherburne, NY, and ending in Sayre, PA, where the first Sojourn began in 1991.

The Chenango Tango also drew the most Sojourn participants ever, with a total of 181 canoeists. The one-day high was June 29, with 95 paddlers participating. A total of 36 participants paddled the entire length of the trip. Informative stops took place along the way.
