Kayak Ice Crunching

Saturday, I headed out with my Jackson Journey 14 kayak to a local lake and found the boat launch area completely frozen over. I tried to break through (someone else had already tried), but the ice was about an inch thick and I didn’t make much more progress than the previous boater.

I headed to another part of the lake and found most of the lake to be open water (the boat launch area was sheltered and didn’t get much sun, which explains why it was frozen over and most of the rest of the lake wasn’t), so I got a good day of paddling in, but there was enough ice around that I had a bit of fun crunching through it… as shown in the video clips below.

Hunter S. Thompson on Life

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming ‘WOO HOO what a ride!'”
