I was hoping to get the kids out here, but we've just been swamped with craziness of life. Every weekend is full on stuff, I wake up on Monday more exhausted than when I signed off work on Friday and can't tell you a thing we've done - but it's sure not canoeing.
I've got my stinkpot working on my canoe, which I think my daughters will like tooling around some. We're into Spring now. The rivers are cool enough that I won't take the kids with me. Too much risk for my limited survival experience. My skills are good enough to keep an adult going - bigger tolerances. With kids you've got to move fast and alone. I'm just not good enough to risk it. Been thinking about taking some classes to get the practice in a controlled setting.
