On Dry Land, But Not Quite Dry

Although theoretically away from sailing for the Summer at West Gilgo Beach in Long Island, we have managed to stay damp and moist with some hydro-adventures…read on.

Missing the discomfort and damp of sailing, we decided to head for the Adirondacks with our sea kayaks to do a kayaking/camping expedition with paddling pal Thom Dunn.  Although kayaking the lakes should have been easy compared to some of our previous sea-paddling adventures, the trip turned out to be quite challenging due to some loooooong day paddles and portages across the land from one lake to another.  But an adventure was had and the weather was kinda kind.  We only had to cook dinner in head-to-toe GORTEX one night!  No bear attacks, medium level of bugs, only one beaver dam to negotiate, not too many leeches…good times.

Just before we left for the Adirondacks we agreed to give a lecture to our WGB community on our post-working-for-the-man adventures.  It was well-received.  Won’t bore you with the whole story here, but part of it was a recap of our first year aboard Genevieve in the Bahamas, via video.  See the below video on YouTube…
