Hi, all. This isn’t about going paddling per se, but about meeting up at Canoecopia this weekend. I’ll be giving two presentations there - one on Friday that is a late addition and not in the printed show guide, and one on Saturday. Would enjoy meeting other paddling.com users, and perhaps grabbing a beer in one of Madison’s great breweries afterward! If you’re at all interested in the presentations, I’ll be speaking on “Packing the Perfect ‘Oh Sh!t Kit’: A Murphy’s Law Adventure Guide.” I’ll be discussing the contents of my frequently-used emergency kit, as well as key additions to a first aid kit. In addition to some good safety info, I’ll share a few stories about why I tend to need these more than the average paddler! (I may be the only person to sever an ACL while kayaking! See photo for proof!) Come say hello! I’ll be presenting from 5:30-6:15 pm on Friday in the Killarney Room of the Clarion Hotel. I’ll also present on Saturday, from 4:30-5:15 pm on Saturday in the Voyageur Room. Hope to see you there!
