First Big Paddle of the Year

A 4 day weekend, And it's going to be at the coast :)

Since changing our original plan, the weather in Michigan for the Kruger Winter Paddle has gotten milder. KiwiBird and I are still sticking with our new plan, paddling here on the NC Coast. The 3 ½ hr drive down will be much nicer than a 15-17 hr drive up to Michigan, and it’ll give us more time on the water.

Not sure of our route. We'll head down to Beaufort and play it by ear, dependent on weather and fitness. Neither of us have really put in any many miles lately, but need to get training for the WaterTribe Everglades Challenge in March.

I’ll have the SPOT on, so if interested, you can track our trip here on Google Earth, and see where we actually paddle. We'll be starting on Thursday.

Weather forecasts for Pamlico Sound have a cold front moving in today and a second one coming through Thur. All that wind might be nice with our sails (PAS), but only if it’s from behind :)

Have a fun time you two! I'll try and follow via your SPOT link. It might be a trip I should do when I head down your way later... so keep good notes!
