The inactivity on this blog crept, no leaped up on me from
out of nowhere. It seemed like there
would be enough regular paddles and mountain bike adventures to write about and
keep this blog filled with regular posts and photos of my meandering in the
Cape Winelands and False bay.
BUT an unexpected job opportunity came my way that I
could not refuse…so back to corporate life in the Winelands for me and with the season time still in full swing, ZERO time for adventure.
Well, not Zero time for adventure. Running the marketing for a Wine Estate comes
with its own little adventures.
With the winter season approaching fast, I am slowly getting
some more time for adventures of my own.
This past weekend the wife and I had an awesome, "stretch the back muscles", paddle in Gordon’s Bay. The weather was perfect, the sunset amazing
and the company excellent AND I did not tip over once (score).
This coming weekend the wife and I will stock up on some
needed winter paddling gear, so watch this space for a report on the next
paddle / mtb ride.
A few weeks back, we had an incident where a paddler close to shore was in need of assistance. This got me thinking: ...What would be the best way to retrieve/tow/assist a paddler who can't stay upright or paddle...??
So what do I do when I have a surfski related question? Ask the guys on the surfski.info forum off course. I started a new topic and soon paddlers from across the world gave their 2 cents worth. There are some great ideas and one would need to figure out what would suit the situation and your abilities.
