It was a really nice day for a January Paddle. I think it was around 34 degrees from what the weatherman said. The key was in the clothing. I wore many layers and a dry suite and was warm to hot the whole time.
I can also endorse the NRS Toaster mitts as a good choice, my hands never got cold.
Our group featured the Alpine Quest Sports crew (great guys), A couple from Greeley (look for their video) and a few others counted at 13 boats overall. There were 2-3 other groups and I'd guess there were over 30 people on the run. It was great to meet all these new people and I really appreciate everyone’s hospitality. I hope to paddle wit you all again. I had a great time and plan to do it again next year.
Here is a quick photo gallery from the days events as witnessed by myself.
Enjoy….Shoshone New Years Day 2009
PS. I was fascinated by Hobie on the SUP board so there are quite a few of him doing his thing.....
