  1. I bought a bicycle hoist system and installed it in my garage, thinking I could use it for my kayak. Alas, it hung too low and did not work as I had intended. I bought a second hoist system that works fine for me. So, if anyone would like the bicycle hoist, come and get it. It looks like this one: https://www.harborfreight.com/bicycle-lift-95803.html Liz

    free gear

    While putting away my camping gear after our fabulous L. George trip, I decided to clean out a bit. I bought these anchors to secure my tent on sand years ago and have never used them. Free to a good, or any, home: https://www.campmor.com/c/campmors-snow-and-sand-deadman-anchors-24444 I also have a back belt cover, that you can put a small therm-a-rest pad in for back support. It measures approx. 9" x 13". Also free. Liz

    Re-purpose a drysuit

    cut off the gaskets and use it as a snowsuit when shoveling out from a blizzard. :-)

MANCHESTER — A lifejacket saved a kayaker who floated in 4-foot seas for about three hours before being found off House Island, on the outskirts of Manchester Harbor, the Coast Guard said. A good Samaritan reported seeing an overturned orange kayak near Salem Channel to the Coast Guard in Boston at 2:24 p.m. Shortly after, the wife of the missing kayaker called. The Beverly Harbormaster rescue crew found the kayaker wearing a life jacket after about an hour search. He had been floating for about three hours. Two rescue boat crews from Coast Guard Station Gloucester and crews from the Salem Harbormaster also launched. They found the kayak before the kayaker, and it contained a dry holding a set of keys and a T-shirt. "A life jacket really saved this man's life," said Ensign Isabella Stoyka, the duty public affairs officer for Sector Boston. "If his kayak was labeled, we may have found him sooner." The water temperature was 66 degrees and winds were about 20 knots, the Coast Guard said.

    Well rats. Instead of dying down, the winds are picking up. We can't paddle with a small craft advisory so this trip is cancelled. Bummer. I'll try for Oct. 12 or 13. .SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

    Also, bring something warm to put on in case we decide to walk out the breakwater. It can be COLD.

    It looks like the forecast for gusts is down a bit. Showers still 20% but I found my magic umbrella. For years I put it on my foredeck and it NEVER rained while we were on the water - regardless of the forecast. Be ready to launch at 6 PM if you are coming. Liz

    Lake Umbagog 2019 Camping Trip: Oct 4-7

    It would be helpful if those who are now not going took their names off the calendar so we can see who actually still is going. Liz

    Thanks for that, Ken. It looks like it will be cloudy, but that won't deter me if others still want to give it a go.We can noodle along the inner harbor route to get out to the breakwater, then decide if we want to go further. The wind gusts may or may not appear. Parking may be available on the boat ramp. If not, unload there and park on the boulevard. Parking is free. Note: A new restaurant opened at the former Morning Glory spot across the street. Great mideastern food. We might want to stop in for a snack and warm-up night cap on our return. Liz
