Yak, yak, yak
So, last thursday I met up with some local cachers at a waterborne event at Fort Patrick Henry Lake. Ever since one of them told me that they always have extra boats at these things and that someone would let my try kayaking, I was just waiting for an event to show up. The fact that the "ideal conditions" did not present themselves was insignificant as far as I was concerned. I have always wanted to do this.
We met up around 6p hoping the rain would hold off. It did not. Oh well, we were going to get wet anyway. I was quick to claim one of the extra kayaks one of the guys had brought. We paddled upstream quite a ways, hitting 4 caches along the way. Being on the water with cool people was awesome, and I think the rain and the current from the generating dam made it more of an adventure.
That was a BLAST. I've had some great adventures caching, and this was definitely one of the best. Can't wait to do it again.
Congrats my friend! So glad that you got to do that. Hopefully I'll be able to tag along next time.
