Thanks for the paddle guys (and Robin!!) It was nice to meet you all and put some faces with some p-net handles. Small world in so many ways, Wetzool working for a friend and paddle companion of mine's brother, meeting a p-netter that saved my roll last summer at a rest stop on the river, crazy coincidence! Paddling past Henry Hudson's vessel the Half Moon at dock on the river that bears his name on my first paddle on that river was very cool! Good conversation, serious slog into some serious headwinds (15-20 gusting to 30) was lots of fun. No, seriously!
Hope I didn't come off as anti-social at the end of the paddle. I tend to get into a zone at the end of a paddle and kick it into sprint mode for the last couple miles. My regular paddle companions are used to it! I kind of forgot I was with folks not used to my eccentricities! Sorry! If any of you ever want to paddle upstate (as in WAY upstate!), drop me a line. I'd love to repay the favor you all showed me.
And next time, hopefully there is enough time after the paddle to tip a couple brews with you.
PS Spiritboat, it was definitely worth the drive down!
