I have been very delinquent in my writing. In part because as the holidays draw nearer I get busier. In part, because paddling wise there isn't much to happening. Plans are moving along well for the this summers Alaska trip. A car was purchased to help transport the kayaks to the north end of the inside passage.

Team mates are starting to get serious about gear, and skills. The trip is coming together nicely, but there is still much to do. I need to start going over maps and charts and really fine tuning the route. That will be most of January. People consistently talk about how they could never do a trip like this. Either it's the sitting in a kayak all day, or taking the time from work. But honestly I think the hardest part is all the prep work. The gear, the food, the boats, the logistics, and most importantly the people. Keeping the people focused - but not overwhelmed and on track. That is the biggest chore.
