    Our internet has been down since last evening at 1715.  I was writing the previous blogline and kept saving an continuing to edit and then I tried to publish – Nada, zip, zero activity.  I lost several paragraphs – too bad WP does not store locally for these types of situations.

    I spent last evening reading and dreaming of my next kayak and travels down the Wabash River.  This is one of my goals to acheive before the body gives out – kayak the Wabash from headend to the Ohio River.  I guestimate 30 days for the trip but perhaps a little longer if I stop in some of the towns along the way.

    I better wrap it up since I have to go to my sisters tonight for dinner.  Today was rain and snow mix with <1 mile visibility.  The roads were slippery and saw several accidents.

  • Kayaks & Fun Stuff

    We went to Fort Wayne today to look at Kayaks.  We went to Fort Wayne Outfitters first and they were very informative and had a location right next to the river and were willing to put one of the kayaks into the water to let us try it out.  He spent a lot of time with us but did not really seem to know kayaks that well or at least came across that way.

    Next we went to Earth Adventures Unlimited and they had a real nice place with a section dedicated just to kayaking and many kayaks in stock.  The prices seemed to be a little lower too.  I sat in one and it had a different feel than the ones we now use.  It seemed a little tight and I had to spread my legs in a somewhat awkward way to get wedged in correctly.  We ask for a lot of other information that they seemed to have all the answers for and they were more my age so I could identify with them.  They have summer tours and put us on the list.
