Where've You Been
I’ve been out of the blogosphere for awhile now. Seems I’m not the only one as some of my old favorites have also become silent, even Derek at KayakQixotica has been quiet. Luckily for me, a few other favorites GnarlyDogNews (kayaking) and Log of Spartina (sailing) are still active.
I’m still on the water of course, but life is about to change with my planned retirement in December. It’s a great opportunity to update the look and work on the direction of this blog. I’ll be back soon when I get it figured out, possibly a blog of an old lady kayaker working through her bucket list :)
The next couple of months is going to be very busy. It’s been awhile since I’ve had any formal kayak training, and so as preparation for some of my future adventures (likely solo) I’ll be taking quite a few ocean and surf classes at both the Kiptopeke Symposium on the eastern shore of Virginia next week, and then at the famous Sea Kayak Georgia Symposium on Tybee Island Georgia. One of my classes is named “Wreckage in the Wave Train”, fun, fun, fun.
I’ll be back.
Picture of me last weekend on NC ICW near Beaufort NC during a CarolinaKayakClubs kayak/camping weekend trip titled Vacation to Hell (distance, heat, bugs, winds, currents, makes for a great adventure). Picture by Craig Smith.
