  You survived your foolishness!

Thank God. The problem is, in the beginning we don't know what we don't know. If I can make a suggestion, order a copy of Sea Kayaker magazine's "Deep Trouble", a compendium of articles from the safety column in Sea Kayaker magazine from over the years. You just learned some important lessons the hard way. A lot of people in your situation have wound up dead. The #1 cause of death in sea kayaking? Hypothermia. Dress for the swim. 3mm neoprene farmer johns, or, in colder climbs, a drysuit. Take a class. Learn a repertoire of "rescues". You (and your wife and kids) will be glad you did! Glad to hear you made it. Welcome to the club. Remember, we're always between swims. ;-)
