    Saguenay Beluga kayak - camping

    Wow, I totally missed this thread! I guess that's what I get for being too preoccupied with hiking and snowshoing in the winter.. And I'm not free this Aug anyway, but maybe it will be so awesome you will want to do it again! Troad, I remember talking with you last summer about doing this, and I'm sorry I won't be joining you this summer. Have a great time everyone, maybe next year! Beth

    NSPN Midwinter Party 1/20 is Fast Approaching!!

    Oooh I am SO sorry that I will miss this fabulous affair! I am co-leading an intro winter camping trip this weekend, and it looks like the weather is co-operating (no -20 temps) so our trip is on... and I will be sleeping in the snow, dreaming of yummy potluck delights as I digest my freeze dried dinner. Please eat lots of goodies for me!

    Odiorne Point on Saturday December 16th

    Definitely interested, but I have an evening commitment, so I'd have to leave on the earlier side. I'll keep an eye on the weather and this thread, sounds like fun!

    How to buy a helmet

    Make sure it is adjustable in size so you can wear a warm hat/hood under it if need be. I like the NRS adjustable model, but the one I have doesn't have a brim. Personally i like wearing a baseball cap under it for the brim.

    Sad News - Gene Cosloy

    So sad to hear this! I only paddled with him a few times, but I have good memories.

    Big conditions off Marblehead

    Whoa! Yes, I got knocked off my feet once, and almost pulled into the water, while ocean watching on some rocks on a "calm" day in Hawaii. I never even saw the wave that hit me; but I still have scars where I clung to the lava shoreline for dear life as the retreating water dragged me towards the edge. I've never forgotten that moment, glad you didn't have a similar one!

    Heels wearing holes in deck

    I just slap a coat of West system epoxy on every year on the worn spots, and the epoxy seems to resist wear better than the fiberglass did.
