We’ve been getting a lot of rain lately, but Sunday after the skies were clear. I put my kayak in the back of the truck, loaded up the family and headed over to the University Lake to test out my new Ride 115 from Wilderness Systems. This was my maiden voyage and I decided to let everyone test it out. The kayak is extremely stable and I even stood up on it a couple times while out on the water. That should make it much easier to see over the marsh grass.
The big problem that we had was that everyone loved it and it was difficult to get them to wait their turn. We didn’t let the girls go by themselves since we really didn’t have a way to rescue them if they had a problem. I took the girls out one at a time and then the boys also took one of the girls out for a ride. Seems that Connie enjoyed herself as well.
Hopefully over the next few months, I’ll be able to explore a few of the more remote areas of the area waterways. I’ve got my fishing license and my fishing poles ready to go. I’ve been looking over the satellite images trying to identify places to look. A friend from church recently got into the sport (several months ago) and has a bunch of areas to fish.
