    This sounds fun but, like others taking that much time at thanksgiving could be a little tuff. My oldest son will be home from college and will want to fish however I will see what I can do.

    I may go broke gearing up for this trip...... but you can't take it with you. Ragnall and I are doing some warm up trips on Percy Priest in Oct and Nov so if anyone else needs some water time to prepare for the trip just send me a PM and we will let you know when we are going out.

    Thanks, hangnout! I'm doing a warm up trip too the second weekend in October on Watauga Lake here in TN. And of course anyone is welcome.

    Tell us what you've been buying to get ready? I'm looking to buy a new spray skirt from Chill Cheaters and a few other things while I'm at it.

    Oh that's just the beginning! You'll want a paddling top, pants, booties, skull cap, pogies etc.... There is a gear sale at the NOC near Bryson City, NC this weekend. Used & new gear and is the biggest sale event for paddlers of the year...I'm going, I'll have Birthday money to spend!

    I knew I forgot something. I didn't get my book on pirate/sailor language. It looks like all I will know is Yaaar, and Shiver me timbers.

    I am a kayaker who has discovered hammocks. This trip sounds to good to pass up. Regarding the gear discussion, I looked up the average water temperature for late Nov-Dec at Kentucky lake and it is 50-55 degrees. This will probably be wet suit or maybe even dry suit conditions depending on the air temps. It should be a good opportunity to test out cool weather hammocking gear. Only 65 days until launch!
