…I will be gone. Uh, gone sea kayaking, that is. What did you think I meant?
For the next 5 days, I will be simultaneously battling dehydration, heat stroke, and hypothermia as I learn How Not To Kill Oneself Or Others With A Sea Kayak. We (the class, not my family – I’m the only one embarking on this little adventure) start on Lake Union for some rudimentary skills training/refreshing, then head out to a state park on Puget Sound for 2.5 days. Then it’s off to a campground on Neah Bay for a couple of days of Pacific surf – not the full force of the open ocean, but surf nonetheless.
So I’ve got my camping gear, sunscreen, Gore-TexTM and a bottle of ibuprofen at the ready – I should be all set. Barring any major mishaps, this should be one of the best birthday presents (okay, combined b-day/Father’s Day present) I’ve ever gotten.
So, for what should now be obvious reasons, posting will be uh… light until this coming Friday or so. For varying values of ‘light’, of course.
