Sounds good, Jason. Remind me a week before and we'll get you set-up. Most of the holes from Brian and Hans's aquatic adventure have been sealed, so you may ride a little higher as a solo

Divorce boats. LOL That's funny since recently I was on Vieques Island of Puerto Rico and we did the Bioluminescent Bay tour in a double kayak... it was all I could do not to throw my better half overboard. ;)

 

 

With over 30 years of canoeing and kayaking experience with Kathy, I've learned that she is always right!   :smitten:

Maybe that's we we keep going  in circles....

 

It's not only in a kayak or canoe... :angel:

Sounds like the years of training are starting to pay off, Kathy. After 28 yrs Pat has finally gotten me past the "put the seat down " phase but I'm pretty much untrainable

does anyone with a tandem have a spot open for a skinny redhead?  i'm just throwing this out there because i'm pretty sure I could have a paddling partner if I could rent a tandem for myself and the stronger good-armed person, but PD02 will be home with me that weekend and i'd like to get him on the water too.

Let's talk about this!  Our family calender is open that morning (we can do Saturday night mass!) but I need to see if R1 is in town.  If not I will be trying to fill pawn off my red head.  Can a kayak handle two red-headed scouts?

if they were together, they would move.  maybe not fast...but they could probably do it.  plus PD02 and R3 get along well (on land).

 

I've got a paddling partner.  just need the tandem yak (hopefully one available still) and a confirmation that PD02 isn't stranded on land by himself.

Oh, well Cindy & me are planning on being there too (barring any previous commitments) so there might be options of us teaming up with either PD02 or R3...

I have no problems with that, but haven't asked how comfortable Cindy would feel doing that  :coolsmiley:

I have one double 'yak reserved... either to share with my wonderful wife (who graciously puts up with all my caching non-sense) or someone else if we can work it out!

Maybe you can rent a double too and you can go with Cindy & I'll take Ian along for the ride!

cjenogan wanted to kayak before he bought one and we were going to rent a tandem together (he'd be the two good-armed one in the yak) if I found someone for PD02.  although, I still haven't asked PD02 if he wants to...  canNOT show him the gator pics first.

Just tell him there's a merit badge for it.

Only if he goes turtle when he sees a gator and out swims it to shore.

Just Google mapped the logistics and amazingly it's nearly the same distance and time from home (Richmond/Cinco Ranch) to Armand Bayou as it is from Pt. Arthur. Not sure how that can be but happy to think I can make the event!

but only after he passes the BSA swim test and has the swimming merit badge in progress/complete...

 

he's going to be one stinky kid come sunday after primitive camping with no showers for 3 days.  his favorite way to camp.

Primitive camping Bedrock's

Been there, done that. Best idea is to hose him down in the driveway to start cutting the wood smoke smell. Come to think of it, the hose-em down in the driveway thing pretty much works anytime they leave the house from 6th grade to freshman year at college. That and "rub dirt on it"will get you through most of the parenting/health/cleanliness issues you'll see. Parenting for Dummies, pages 14-26

Reminder to get your reservations in if you're renting.  Pinkys has been doing great business on nice days.  Don't miss out.

My great nephew Emmit decided my yak was the perfect place to store his rubber snake.

I didn't realise until I started prepping the yak for this event.

Bet he still laughing at the way I.jumped :)
