New gear... yay!

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

My dad agreed to pay for my cold water paddling gear today. I got a wetsuit, and neoprene gloves and shoes. I am better equipped now to deal with Fall kayaking conditions. Good thing since we have several launches coming up. Tomorrow we are taking our 13 year old niece out for the first time. It probably won't be a long paddle. I just hope she can hold off on the complaints long enough to enjoy the experience, but she is 13 so...

Saturday's launch has gone from probable to questionable. My brother hasn't decided yet. I am hoping we do go, but if we don't then we will head out midday on Saturday for the central part of the state for the canal paddle. It looks like it will be a much bigger group this year as compared to last year. There are 9 people currently signed up, but who knows how many will actually show up. LOL!

Whatever happens it will be a fun adventure!

    Cool beans on the gear.

I didn't know you wanted a wetsuit. I have an old Farmer John I could have given you.

Anyway, now you've got a brand new nice one, so that's great. It will definitely keep you warmer!

My slalom coach is showing Wheaten Terriers at the dog show on Saturday at 1pm and I'd like to see that. So if you don't end up going to the 'dacks for the paddle on Saturday, come earlier so we can go play at the dog show! (You KNOW Cooper needs a souvenir! LOL)

  Enjoy the new digs, they should make you want to get back out there again and again. That's how I am when I buy new equipment
