“Spend as much time as possible on mountains, in small boats, or otherwise out in the weather; if you never get wet, cold, exhausted or scared, you won’t properly appreciate being dry, warm, rested and safe.” ~ Peter Jay

Thursday and Friday...

I managed to get out paddling Thursday evening and twice on the 4th. On Thursday I just did a short jaunt up the main channel in my tandem with Scruffy, sorry no map but there is a youtube video at the end of this post.

On the 4th, I paddled as far up the Bad River as I could make it... not as far as in April though. Totaled 6.5 miles. Then in the afternoon/early evening I paddled with my mom and Scruffy (they had my tandem) about 4.2 miles around Dump Island. Due to crazy wake from all the boaters I decided to try my skirt with the Carolina. It worked and even supported Scruff when he swam over to me!
