    Terry, thanks for the great tour of Humbug Bay. It is the longest paddle I've made in my inflatable and at times it was a challenge, but I enjoyed the trip and met many nice friends! Thank again for your organizing!

    What a beautiful trip. Thanks for letting us take so many cool dips, such a welcome relief.
    Thank-you Terry for taking us.

    Ooops! What is a "nav boat"? After about 45 minutes in the water some good Samaritans towed us to shore. When we finally made our way to the ranger station to let you know we made it, they were unable to reach you by radio. Great to hear about the coyotes & seagulls though! Was that the "interpretive ranger" part that we missed?Sounds like you had a GREAT time! Never did see anything about a 10+ mile paddle or experience or strength or keeping up. Must have been in the fine print. We will keep our eyes peeled for that "nav boat" though!

    Tim capsized and I did too while trying to help him get back in. Blew my whistle like crazy but you guys didn't come back to help. Training for your next race I guess. Congrats though on your 7mph avg on last weeks 100 miler! Wow! You should make it clear "every man for himself" so us non racers know what we are getting in to.

      I thought the pace was quite slow and we waited for others to catch up. I think the distance could be a problem for a beginner or someone not prepared for it. People should be more aware of people around them in case someone capsizes.

    Fun day on the lake paddling to Humbug Bay and back. We made lots of stops to jump in and cool down. Only lost two of the fifteen kayakers on the way out! We saw them coming but they never made it to the island we were all waiting around, found out later they had one flip and decided to turn around. They did let us know, by way of our nav boat and that was good of them. We saw some wildlife, coyotes, hawks, roadrunner, sea gulls, white egrets, blue heron, other water birds, and of course lots of burros. The wind stayed at bay, so even our lone paddle boarder did just fine. Turned out to be around eleven miles and we returned right on time.

    Can this paddel be done in a 10 foot yak?

      I agree with Reagan, not a problem unless it is very windy. We do have people with tow ropes if needed, if the wind gets the best of you.

      OK sounds good. This Saturday we are heading to REI to get two kayaks! :)

    There is no hike associated with this paddle in the summer months, misprint, I took it out. Later in the spring we do add a hike on this paddle.

    Hmm...title says "paddle and hike" but description only mentions the paddle (which is fine with me). Is there a hike, and if so, how long?
