Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Went up shit creek

But the paddle is in recovery. Y’all ‘member, last weekend, ol’reliable had a moment of dispair, and decided to have a split personality while in the wet. Little storm paddle got me back to shore, but with the fast water and inexperience, I chose sanity over suicide and called it a day.Well, Ol’reliable is getting a make over into a NEW storm paddle. And seeing the loom set up, I’d say most Inuit storms are rebuilds from broken paddles, or, well, maybe thats where the idea came from. The only real difference(‘sides name and usage,) between the two paddles is the length of loom at center. On a full size, that loom is the width of your hands at rest near your hips. In a stormpaddle, its the width of your palm.Its memorial weekend and the lakes are full of Ohioan escapees, and the river is a crap milkshake again thanks to monsoon week. But I’m getting the Duh!k out for a little rolling practice in a cove the boats can’t get to. A really nice ridge line just below the surface keeps ’em out and knocks the waves down to manageable for what I want to learn.Ok, nuff of boring kayak stuff, y’all take care and have a pleasant weekend.
