Looking at 2012:

As winter chills my bones, I have to look ahead to the fun stuff coming up next year in order to keep my mojo going. So let's have a look-see:

February, 2012: Canoecopia in Madison, Wisconsin. I look forward to staffing, meeting old friends, hearing all sorts of experts from around the world and seeing all the new gizmos I cannot live without.

June: No symposium this year: The one in Washburn, Wisconsin...near the Apostle every other year.

July: weekend after 4th of July (July 12th-15th): Door County Sea Kayak Symposium sponsored by my peeps at Rutabaga in Madison, Wisconsin. This annual event is held in Door County on the tip of the thumb of Wisconsin. Great weekend to learn, trip and perfect techniques. I look forward to staffing.

July: one weekend after DKSKS: Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium at Grand Marais, Michigan, Upper Peninsula:  Beautiful location with Kelly Blade's, et al, leading. I look forward to staffing again.

Between the last two, I look forward to a 3-4 day camp out on the shores of Lake Superior with my man JB. Relaxing, paddling, good food in town and JB's Irish Whiskey. Hopefully, Sherri will also make it this year.
Hey, the winter isn't looking so bad after all.

Paddle safe...
