“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

"I’m an adventuring river rat at heart. Put me on a floating piece of driftwood and I’m happy." ~ Christina Glauner

Past two days...

On Wednesday, a quick paddle around Dump Island by William, Chuck, Will's brother, and myself. Uneventful, except that we fought through the wind on our way down, but when we turned to come back the wind died off. Chuck had planned on using his kayak sail on the way back. He used it anyway but fell way behind the rest of us. Pictures in the slide show.

Last night, Chuck took his new QCC 700X out and Will and his girlfriend paddled my tandem. John was there too. Funny thing, we had four boats and four different brands out last night!
  1. My Perception Carolina 14
  2. My Hurricane Santee 140T
  3. John's Wilderness Systems Tempest 17
  4. Chuck's QCC 700X
