    I'm in Mechanicsville so that would be real easy to do.

    We have our jet skies loaded up and ready to go out today but I'm going to putt around on my kayak instead and get used to the feel. I expect that will take up much of my time there so I told him to send out some text messages and find somebody else for mine. We will end up at Goose Bay since I am so familiar with that area and will be okay on my own - plus I expect that there will be several others out in the area I'll be heading - there always is. I'm real excited hence the reason I'm up so early like a little kid.

    My husband has said the same thing... he finds the position uncomfortable. He just doesn't like it and that is that so I'm so happy that there are groups that go out..... at my age, I don't want to hold off something I want to do because my S.O. doesn't want to do it and I wouldn't expect him to do that either. We have friends that do stand-up paddle boarding and I didn't like that very much and my husband absolutely hated it. I seriously had to insist he bring the board and paddle back in before he killed himself.

    That sounds like an awesome way to spend the day. Enjoy your time out on the water!

    I like to be right.

    Everyone's entitled to my opinion.

    If you don't have anything nice to say to someone, then you need to STFU.

    Going to try and sneak in a quick paddle with my daughter down at St Marys College. IF anyone sees a pair of red an blue Perception Swiftys, thats us.

    As for weight when the money tree ripens up, I am looking real hard at the Oru. 12 feet long, 25lbs, and most importantly for people who travel frequently, can be folded up and taken on an airplane

    That's me too, unfortunately. We have a nice old sea kayak (can't remember what make..bought it back in the day from Blue Wind) but my reconstructed lower back hates it. I stick to my old Grumman canoe (where I can kneel) and let the kids use the kayak.

    Shame too...I envy all the folks I see launch at the Piney Point ramp and head out. Some of those things have more fishing rods on them than my boat does! And seeing a lot more of the pedal-powered ones these days too.

    My Hobie kayak had the pedals, and i had a sail kit for it too. Still couldn't deal with it. And unless you had outriggers, the sail kit was a disaster!!

    And the good ol' Grumman canoe. Nothing better. My 18 footer is at my folks house in VA. I really should get it back. Had it strapped to the roof of my car years ago, but not securely enough. It "departed" and flew off into a guard rail at 30mph. Only put a little crinkle in the bow.

    I'm not going to have one problem sleeping tonight Between riding jet skies and kayaking I'm pretty pooped. What a fun day! Well, except when I fell trying to get our skies back on the trailer... stupid tide.... the tide was so low I couldn't get up on deck... Either way I was going to have to get in the water, so I guess it was fine that I went in it without much choice in the matter. My kayak is a breeze to handle and my wet suit work beautifully.

    Patuxent Water Trail

    The website The Patuxent Water Trail has a listing of places you can launch your kayak to paddle on the Patuxent River. The site is being updated and will include more launches and camping sites soon. There is also a great waterproof map done by a local paddler available at Patuxent Riverkeeper.
