Here I am on the maiden voyage of my new kayak! I took the plunge (no pun intended!) with a little help from a couple of wonderful friends! One had expert knowledge of kayaks and went with me to the sporting goods store. The other - well you know who you are! Thank you sooo much! It is a great kayak and tomorrow is a trip down the Green River in Cave City, Kentucky! Wish me luck with NOT swamping this one! LOL!
