Christmas Evening Relaxation

  • Dec 25, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Please join us for a Christmas evening get together at our house to celebrate with friends and relax. Jenn and I will provide shrimp cocktail. Please bring a snack/ appetizer to share and beverage of your choice. We now have firewood, so there will be a cozy fire in the fireplace, too. :)

If you're missing kayaking, bring your kayak and you can sit in it in the living room. ;)

    I would like to join you tonight, but I'm home with my family.
    I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Maybe we can get out on the water soon.

    Hey guys, Amy and I have to run up to Mt Vernon real quick to see her grandmother in the nursing home. We'll both be coming but may not get there until 7:30ish. Here's what we're bringing:

    Veggie tray
    Chips
    Peanut Butter cookie dough
    Chocolate Chip cookie dough

    See everyone soon

    Thanks for organising this Jenn & Kristin. Since I have no family or love ones around, I'm more than Thankful to get together with my thoughtful RAT family, sitting in my kayak in your living room.

      I Had the same surgery a few years back. It hurt like blazes before the surgery but felt so much better after. The healing is very quick. Be sure to do your physical therapy.

    Hey gang, I had to make a wet exit from my truck today. Thought I was in my kayak and challanged some high water. Unfortunatly the road took a fast dip and stalled the motor. The water was still rising and by the time it stopped I was in four feet of water. Fortunatly a guy was nearby in a row boat running his trap line and heard me calling on my cell phone for help. By this time I was on the hood of the truck for the warmth from the engine. He got me to dry land and a guy named Gary who lived nearby took me to his house and gave me some dry cloths and put my wet cloths in the dryer. Bottom line is I'm not sure if I will be getting a rental in time to make it to the Christmas Evening Relaxation even though I really need it. By the way that big red "S" on my chest does not mean Stover or Superman. IT MEANS "STUPID"!

      Hi Don, I didn't mean to make light of what could have been a very tragic situation. However, I have confidence that out most combat experienced "Rat" had it under control.

      December 24, 2013

    • Don S.

      No problem Sami. I needed a smile and you provided it. I was never in any real danger other than extreme embarrassment. This did provide some good info on how cold that water is. I'm going to get at least a wet suit if not a dry suit before I do any winter kayaking. I talked to my insurance company and it looks like the truck will be totaled. Thats a bummer since I just purchased all the yakima pieces and parts to carry 3 kayaks on top of the hard bed cover on the truck. I hope we get the car rental in the morning so Judy and I can make it to the 25th get together.
