    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

    okk but the river needs to get cleaned up some... kinda went too fast for us my wife got stuck in the mess and we turned back I got caught on a tree and went in the water flipped the yak,, ok made it back to launch ok before rain (was wet anyway) We expected more of a nature paddle alittle slower so as to enjoy the scenary...
