    WOW! What a workout! It was FANTASTIC! Too much for my stamina level, however. Ed (really The Incredible Hulk in real life) took pity on me and towed my exhausted self UP the Passaic for 2 miles. If I promise to eat my Wheaties every day, can I go again? Ed and Victor are the best ever kayak buddies.

    Another good day on the river. This was a very senic section of river with a few obstacle thrown in for some added fun. Gail was a great sport and a lot of fun. Thanks Victor for putting this together, but next time add more turtles
