    Pogies

    I really like these ponies from Immersion Research. They have some rigidity and therefore are easy to get hands in and out of. They also are large enough that you can get NRS mitts in and out of them for really cold weather paddling. They also are not too expensive. https://nextadventure.net/immersion-research-microwave-handwarmers.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=1o1&scid=scplp066831&sc_intid=066831&gclid=CjwKCAjw96fkBRA2EiwAKZjFTVDw0s5iewHV6hGeuMFFhogB18ezutE6_0E0cclwQ3Tj82kmf-rokxoCrYAQAvD_BwE

    Radio Listening Watch

    Admittedly I have the radio on my life jacket if 1) I am with a group or 2) paddling solo that involves a long crossing and or 3) if there is a threat of fog or rough seas. I put the radio in the mode to scan 9, 16, a station for local boat traffic/the station the group has selected. For what it is worth, I was in periodic contact with the H.W. Bush marine security team and occasionally HW and/or Barbara when paddling off of Cape Porpoise/Walkers point. During the first gulf war there was surface to air missile batteries posted on Goat Island. I exchanged words and challenged HW to a boat race which he took in good humor. I cant imagine having a similar exchange with the present occupant of the White House.

    location suggestions

    Nick Other campgrounds off the top of my head include: Winslow Park in Freeport; Sagadahoc Bay Campground in Georgetown- only on the upper half of the tide and this campground is located near the mouth of the Kennebec River with lots of exposure and currents Gray Homestead Campground on Southport Island Ames Island Campground in Muscongus Bay Lobster Buoy Campground in the Muscle Ridge area near Rockland Old Quarry Campground in Deer Isle Hadley Point Campground and Mt Desert Campground on MDI Mountainview Campground Gouldsboro Jonesport Campground in Jonesport Are you a MITA member? The MITA Guidebook has information on all of these campgrounds.
