So it begins...
I had my doubts about the weather...and the date...as I drove to Madison on Friday the 13th. The sky was overcast and the temps low for may. On the other hand, it was the first class of the season at 'Baga. It was, for me, the official start of the summer paddling season.
We only had to leave the pond once when we heard distant thunder. Still, we got in all the instruction and then some. When I got home, I was surprised how achy I felt and how heavy the boat seemed as I lifted it onto its rack. I need to get back to maximum condition. It has begun.
So far, I have been a father, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a physician, jazz musician, an adjunct professor at a university, taught judo for 3+ decades, fine-arts black and white photographer, mediator, ham radio operator, SCUBA diver, great lakes sailor, ACA level 4 coastal open water kayak instructor. In these pages I hope to share some of what I've learned doing those things.If, on occaision, you feel your leg being pulled, so much the better.
