Couldn't take it any more. Tired of hangn in the garage since the mountains around here are still full of snow. Decided to knock the dust off the kayak, threw the gear into a pack and went to the local river here. There are some islands in the river and what better way to get the new gear outside. Paddled up river to one of the islands, explored around a while since I hadn't been on this island before. Picked a spot and set up. Hung out a while tweaking and relaxing in the hammock. Was nice to get out and better yet, mess with the gear. Figured a few things out and going to change others. Was a nice outing!
