    I'm a maybe depending on weather. It's a long drive for a potentially short paddle.
  4. I just realized I am missing a small green 8-liter drybag with some clothes in it. I am pretty sure I had it when I left the island, either in my kayak or in an IKEA bag taken back on the launch. If anyone comes across it, please let me know. Thanks, Nancy

    Solstice L3 Group - June 22

    Nice day on the water with everyone. When I didn't have a death grip on my paddle for fear that the wind would take it out of my hands, I took a few pictures. Here's a link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HGE96McE1xUfFHzyyRNNKKG6OjOO0Qqi

    Solstice L3 Group - June 22

    My kayak is on the car's roof and I expect to paddle with L3 or L4. Wayne will be coming with me, probably paddling with L4. We have all necessary equipment. Looking forward to a nice day on the water.
  8. I wish I lived closer so I could join you. It is too far for a day-trip for me. I did paddle in that area once a long time ago. I paddled from the crib bridge to Hemit Island Campground via Elm, Flag and Wood Islands. It was a nice trip across the bay with big swells coming in. I hope you'll post a trip report. I'll be in that area in July and will be looking for paddling routes/ideas. -Nancy

    May 7 - Walden Pond at 5PM, Comella's restaurant at 7:30

    I will not be able to make it, after all. 😞 I had a cortisone shot in my shoulder today and can't paddle (use my shoulder) for the next 5 days. I will be out of town the following week. I'll get there eventually.

    This sounds like a great idea, Dan. See you on May 7th! Thank you for your planning.

    Crossing President Roads

    I just went through a bunch of photos from 4/17/16 of a trip from City Point, going with the tide out through President Roads, past the tip of Deer Island, then turning east (crossing North and South Channels) on to Calf Island. I remember the day very well and there was no boat traffic. The only boats I see in my photos are a tanker way off The Graves and a Tugboat heading out to it. Here's a picture from Calf Island looking toward Deer Island. It was a Monday. I think off season is your best bet.

    Solo loading

    Hmmm....my VW wagon has the "eyebrow" above the rear window. It never occurred to me that it wouldn't be strong enough to support the kayak, as I pushed it up along the edge of it. This is what I have been doing for about 5 years, with no damage. Perhaps it depends on the car. I use a fuzzy bathmat with rubbery side against the car.
  15. Name some paddling locations you expect to visit in 2019 or 2020 for which you don't already own a chart: Nova Scotia If you DO own some charts, how do prefer to get them? (buy online, marine supply store, print them myself...) I have purchased some and make and print many of my own. I use Rose Point Navigation Coastal Explorer. I print them on legal size paper and have them laminated at Staples. I should look into having them printed on waterproof paper. If you were to BUY a chart, would you choose a $25 waterproof chart or an identical $10 paper chart? Waterproof. How much would you be willing to pay to BORROW a waterproof chart that you didn't have for the duration of an NSPN trip? ($0 is a valid answer) I would not borrow a chart. Which of the following do you NOT currently own? waterproof chart case, deck compass, handheld compass, marine radio, tow belt, helmet. I own all of those.
