Next on the list, a 4-day trip to Skookumchuck (this only half counted since we did have one day of sunshine while we were there). Nonetheless, Don did his share of surfing in the wind and rain, and worse–camping in it afterwards.
Then, one more day of river kayaking before heading south. After breaking all the ice off of the tent in the morning, we unrolled our dripping wet drysuits, and headed out for a run on the Upper Elaho. After that take-out, Don was ready to hang up his drysuit and poggies for the winter, and bust out that shorty. At least for his first month there, he won’t underestimate the beauty of 70 degree water and 80 degree air temps in the middle of winter.
Have fun down there Don, don’t forget your sunscreen!
Stay tuned for some actual photos
and a report from our first trip.
