Looking forward to being here during Bikeweek

It always coincides with Swamp Fest here in Weeki Wachee

Think I'll make a sign for The Swamp proclaiming...

So How many Kayaks you have access to Al?
Is one rental place over there better than the rest?
What about paddling over to pine Island?

We'll be there if you'd rather ride down then

Should have the kitchen totally enclosed next week, at least the garage doors are supposed to be here

I've got three solo kayaks, two of them rated at 350 lb. capacity

And one 14 foot canoe that I paddle solo or with one of the girls

I don't see any reason why I couldn't drop y'all off at Pine Island

and then pick you up at Donny's there on the river

There are some really nice tidal creeks south of Bayport

And between Mud River and Weeki Wachee river

...and if I were renting a kayak I'd probably just use the place right there at Weeki Wachee State Park

Five of us who don't mind paddling up stream can put in at our local park

And meet the rest at the headwaters of the spring

JoLinda and I can use our canoe and bring along some beer

Can't take alcohol in at the state park

Last time I was in a kayak, I spent most of the time in the water trying to get back in the damn thing.

Do they rent any "klutz-friendly" ones?

Secret is stopping at places where it's only inches deep

And there's many of them

River flows around corners creating eddies and sandbars

...along with deep cuts across from them

And yea, the kayaks rated for 350 lbs are wider and flatter with larger access and seating area

Not nearly as tipsy

Short flat easy paddling kayaks are what you want on a narrow twisty river

Frying two turkeys Friday

19 and 21 pounds

Think I'll make jambalaya to go with them

There will be plenty for all that show as usual

Saturday, HoJo wants me to make turkey noodles with the leftovers

Although we can always do pulled pork too

Crap! Not going to be able to make it over at all this time. Several things I have to work on here that are becoming time critical.

Happy Birthday HoJo!
