    Well I was a bit nervous after I heard the trip had to be altered because of wind and waves, and then a couple people said they weren't going to go and left! But Andrew assured me we'd be fine and we were! Not just fine but GREAT! Like paddling in New York City and around the bend, into the wilderness. We saw Loons, an eagle and a couple osprey! We found only one of the three geocaches but the one was a good one! Thanks guys, that was one awesome trip!
