    Key is buying the right Kay for you (size, weight, upper body strength and many things considered). And - please, my friends, always wear your PFD!

    Right! And another factor, is the amount of space available for the beer cooler!

    Opps - sorry I forgot! Isn't that what that little round well with the cover is for??? Ice and brew? It's not for drainage!

    The Joy to the World series is an 8 mile paddle in total. Such a great area to paddle

    We DNF'd 2 caches on Phillips Lake on 9/2/10. Not sure if they are missing or not but it is a beautiful lake and was a nice paddle too
    If you want to try cross country skiing, start with a small country

    The caches are: Joy to the World (GC1WRWB) by Three Dog Night (3/5)
    Joy to the Fishes (GC1WRX9) by Three Dog Night (2.5/5)
    Deep Blue Sea (GC1WRXE) by Three Dog Night (2.5/5)
    Mighty Fine Wine (GC1WRXA) by Three Dog Night (2/5)
    Add Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog (GC1WRXQ) which is a two-part multi that is also part of the series.

    We have done the series and really enjoyed the paddle. We might consider going along just for the fun of it! Weekend weather is looking good!
    Wandering with a purpose!

    Started last year and as mentioned earlier, do some research on them. I selected an Old Town Vapor as the cockpit opening is quite large which accommodates my knees and hips that don't fold as they once did.

    And I'll tell ya.....I grew up on Millinocket Lake, on the water with a canvas canoe, moving up to a homemade boat with 25 hp Evinrude, on to bigger boats including a 28 foot, twin screw Carver and ending with a 20 foot Grady White. The most fun and relaxing time over the years has been in the kayak. Paddling just before/after sunrise with loons.....watching moose feed and bald eagles hunt. That's a stress-buster if ever there was one!
    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    The farmer gave permission to place the cache in the field, but the bull charges.
