How many days have you kayaked this year?

Another post made me think of this question. I see a lot of frustration from newer paddlers who just haven't "gotten it". Sadly I think most of these people give up and quit. Most of them spend 2 or 3 days a month in their kayak.

So how many days do you have in your kayak this year? Be it a day at the play park or an overnighter somewhere remote. Starting from the end of March I have around 25. I just bought a drysuit so next year I expect that number to go up a little.

Damn Fullmer... Getting in done! I love the Durango paradox... Playboatin or hard class V with nothing in the middle.

I'm prob nearing 40 days this year. A bit light for a normal year since I missed the spring Cali trip and work is cutting into boating time.

gotta be close to 40. lots of low water Boulder creek with the kid, then high water boulder creek with and without the kid. Finally getting CC while still relatively high, without the kid.

I keep threatening to keep a log, but have yet to take the initiative.

Work it Fullmer; very well played, and lots of water left.

Hey Ian,

Looking forward to Bailey Fest soon!

Maybe we'll get a rain bump again for some high water.

Thanks for this thread. It made me go back and log everything I've done since I did my first class back in May. I'm at 20 days paddled with only 6 days missed this month. Crazy knowing how much time I've put in to this sport already!
