on lake Taneycomo in Branson, Mo
especially when they cover my ears!
One thing I don't enjoy is being cold
the kayak gets pretty toasty.
But be warned
if you decide to go kayaking in super-cold weather
wear Gortex/something waterproof
It's not the threat of falling in or getting rained on
that you need to be worried about
It's the possibility of sitting in soggy pants
because the condensation that collects on the inside of the kayak from your body heat mixing with the kayak sitting in cold water can create some really drippy-drawers.
This is me one NYE on Santa Cruz Island
enjoying some bubbly and treats after hiking all day in the rain
It cleared up just long enough to snack for about an hour
Enough time to take some silly pictures, and laugh at a huge crow
that flew off with a WHOLE wedge of triple cream brie
which weighed about a 1/2lb
I figured it would be a good thing to pass the time by taking silly pictures
This is one of my all time favorite pictures
Here's an incredible quick google aerial video of the trail
on my personal expectations, acceptance, pride, ability, and respect.
I encourage you to get outside
Embrace a little discomfort.
Face a fear.
