Re: question help

hi jack,


photography was going to be the purpose of the paddling trip that sparked this discussion. looking forward to the trees displaying their autumn outfits this month. as far as actual knowledge of the rule of 12ths, that is going to be required reading for a winter's day.

learning curve

posting on a forum is also new. next time will not start a new topic.

also will bring along more to eat than a couple of packages of peanut butter crackers.

chip, the trip back was probably faster because one slow person stopped half way!!!

looking forward to more kayaking.
