Last Sunday I went on a river paddle! It was the first 'real' paddle I did! We paddled 8 miles and at the end I could barely raise my arms! There were about 20 0f us and we had a blast! We had several 'incidents' but everyone survived! I have decided that my next major purchase will be a kayak - I even have one picked out! I will try to post a link to show which one I decided on. Meanwhile, here are some pictures of the paddle. Hopefully I will get some scrapping time to do a couple of layouts.
