Here's me sitting by a canoe at the put it, enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. I did 11 miles today, followed by a great eat at Fiesta's Mexican Restaurant. Ken, Jean and Steph from MadCity Paddlers joined me for the last 5.5 back down in Jefferson.
FYI. I am dressed for the day and not the water. This is not smart with the water temperature at at 40 degrees F. But I have a Frost River Portage Pack, not shown stuffed full of gear, ditch kit, etc...
BTW John from the Paddlin Shop did a great presentation for the MCP group on cold water paddling on Thursday. Great stories, valuable information which reminded and motivated me to put some time in gathering the necessary safety gear for cold water paddling.
It was kinda fun rummaging through equipment boxes putting gear together. Most of my serious expedition gear is still sitting at Kruger Canoes in action packers. So wooded paddles, stuff sacks and a 23 year old Sawyer Summersong would need to see me through.
