    That was awesome MM, now that is a lake you've got access to and a lot of freedom with campsites by the look of it which is great, I'm dreaming of some island camping sometime. I'm guessing that you're in the Mirage 580 whats the other one? Are the gators friendly!? do they like steak too those cypress trees are amazing, they look quite ancient, I'm wondering how old they are? and I'm a bit scared to ask but is poof her real name...

    I really need to get a kayak. There are so many places in SC like that. Great video thanks for sharing it with us.

    Phantom! You rock! Not in the Mirage this time...we used the wee little Wilderness System Tsunamis-they are beater boats but surprisingly quick and can stow enough for 3-4 days if no kitchen sink.
    Everybody we talked to saw gators the day before we started and while we were on the paddling trip but we didn't see any. I wanted to see on basking on a bank-grew up with them in southern florida and had one yearly as a pet when I was 8-12 years old-it was legal then to own them.
    Glad you liked the cypress---to me they look feminine like they are all wearing skirts!
    Poof like MedicineMan are trail names HA!
    Mbcruzin-glad you liked....def. get a little kayak for your state---S.Carolina has so much to offer. We're currently planning our section ride in the Francis Marion-the Swamp Fox Passage.

    The Tsunami's are nice little yaks & loading up the hatches beats lugging it on your back anyday!. She would get funny looks if she introduced herself by her trail name down here in Oz... some words don't carry over between cultures as well as others

    Great video. I would love to be able to take a trip like that. Not much kayaking up here in the desert especially with that kind of scenery. We also don't have any gators

    Phan-tom. I gotta ask, what does Poof mean in Ozspeak?
    KSC...I've climbed Mt.Wheeler in Great Basin--is that close to you---yep I can see no need for a kayak there.
    Thanks for the positives guys.

    Verrrry nice, medicineman! I like thoughs BIG trees that are growing right on the water. You can even paddle around amongst them. I hate bugs! You can have those fire ants too! Perfect kayaking weather and a really nice place to paddle! Good time of year for kayaking too. I have been and will be using mine a bit, in the next couple of months. Thanks for the video, medicineman! Kayaking and hammocking are made for each other.

    Now...

    From the dictionary:
    poofta; a variation of the english slang poof, meaning a homosexual.

    Horses hoof, also means poof.

    Another thing you might find helpful at times is here a g-string is a form of underwear for women. In the USA its called a thong. Whereas, here, thongs are what are known in the USA as Flip-flops. Just a bit of mostly useless info for you.

    Absolutely hammocks and kayaking are a perfect match. Once on a lake close to home I hung where a tent would have been on a 45 degree angle.
    Thanks for those definitions/slang equivelents! and will see how they might fit into my vernacular!
    Poof got her trailname by once seemingly like magic producing a place to stay after a long day of travel.

    Here, poof is also used to describe something like a magic trick, when there is a small puff of smoke... do trick... powf (just like in the thumbnail you attached). But, its said the same way you say poof, it sounds like there is a w after the o powf. Poof, on the other hand, is said the same way the word look is said, with the use of the two oos. Remove the l and k in the word look, and replace them with p and f. Same word pronounced differently gives it two meanings. Oh and, the word poof (said with the oo not the ow) is also used as the name of a certain kind of foot stool, a kind of chair for your feet. English is very complicated, no wonder I failed it at school.
