    The current was swift yesterday. Had to back paddle few times just to stay only a few miles ahead.

    This will be my first meet up with this group. Just wanted to make sure that if i havent kayaked before that this trip is a good beginners trip. I will need a kayak and equipment. Will I need to bring an additional 25. if I have already paid 25.00 to the club? I wanted to see who would be at Panera so I could have a face to look for. Any advice as to what I need would be appreciated.

    Susan: I'm a little behind on readying myself for my Easter trip to NY, so I think I need to bow out of this paddle. With it being more miles (12 did you say?), I have several things that I need to do on Saturday and can't spare the whole day again. :( bummer I know. I am changing my RSVP. Thanks much!

    April 10, 2014

    • Susan

      OK, HAVE A GREAT NY TRIP AND HAPPY EASTER :~)
