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

For a camera eye,

Lol. With how our tech , and optical tech at that, has shrank over the last decade, you’d think there would be something a person could wear that would be unobtrusive and high quality. (And there likely is and with a gorgeous price tag attached to it)

I have a deck camera but it formats in a different code than my phone likes and one that takes 15 hours to upload a 2 minute video to the cloud. So, no video (nor pics) from yesterdays ‘float’: just the short clip I pulled before we started loading in. As busy as I was paddling, no time to pull the phone out, and no waterproof case that I can use and still use the camera aspect. Had one but it developed a leak and I haven’t replaced it.

Man, what a day though. No politics, no bullshit riots, just water, friendship, a couple beers at just the right moments, and a enough not flat water to make things lively. Talk was about boats, boating, skills, and even some off-grid topics as one of the floaters is looking into going off-grid. Even discussed how to find property on the cheap without needing a realtor.

Anywhoos, I hurt today. Muscles not used like that in awhile. I was using a paddle meant for a small boat used in shallow water. It uses a different hand position and angle of attack than the Greenland paddles and a whole different GROUP of muscles. With the GPs, I use more abodomen and low trapezoids. This paddle used the high traps, more shoulder and chest and less ab with more back involved. I’m walking around today like someone tied a rope around my shoulders along my back, and twisted the rope tight. Shoulders are pulled back tight!.

And no paddling today. Lots of work to do not kayak related and some that is. Weedeat the yard edges since we have had a couple dry days, cut, split and stack wood that has been sitting waiting for a dry spell. And for fun, pull Betty to the ‘shop’ and retrim that backband issue and trim my thigh braces so I don’t need a shoehorn to get in. Its likely I will have to order a backband. The current setup is a block of Minicell. I’ll do something to lift it higher and see if that helps, but if not, money time.

I know, boring yak stuff.
