I don't sun bathe any more so the weather has little effect if any on me.
This past weekend was a good example. CANOEING at minus 15 degrees heck
why not? just because the lake is frozen over doesn't make much of a
problem. We just put the canoes on top of Malcom Goats car and went to
Enfield. Schubenacadie River here we come.
Little riffle at the start and some class 1-2 fast water and there we
were a mile or two downstream. Turn and back up we go. OOoh, a little
tougher and now we have to UP the small drops, after a couple of near
misses, we were through.
Maybe next time we will go downstream a little farther, and avoid the
faster water. So it was a little cold and my fingers got wet. Isn't that
how we learn? Night hike- What did Scrounger say "too cold" Christ don't
you just put on an extra layer? Dipper,Sun God, Malcom Goat,Frosty's Dad
and the Viking all met at Timmies at 7:30 and we were off.
across from Paper Mill Park in Waverley is an old dog walking trail that I
used to run on 20 years ago. A bit of snow but well sheltered from the
wind. We walked till we were near the end, found a couple of bigger rocks
and set up a fire. Dipper had cedar shingles and a bit wood ( we missed
our little buddy Dudley Doo Right with his logs) but we did get a nice
blaze going and had the obligatory hot dogs roasted over an open fire and
some tea and coffee (Dipper had his beer) and sweets then back out.
sure Frosty went about four times the distance that his two-legged buddies
went but he was flying. It wasn't cold, it was refreshing.
- 0800 Sun Morning there we were- the intrepid trio - out first again.
Two brisk laps around the Waverley Sports Park, a really nice little 5 k
loop wihout many people a few hills but just enough to give a change of
pace. Aaah then coffee at the Irving in Waverley a nice way to start a
Sunday followed by NFL and an afternoon of leisure.
