Was jonesing bad to get on the water yesterday. Not the greatest weather, rain moving in, but if you're signed up for the 340 then no explaination needed.

Wife thought I was crazy but agreed to transport and dropped me in St. Charles at Blanchette Landing. Couldn't believe there was another paddler, Andy C, wearing a dry suit and ready to jump in on his S18S! We paddled together a few miles, separated, then re-joined through the rain. Got out at Sioux Passage Park, about 2.5 hours. Great day, thanks for the company, Andy!

So snow is forecast for this afternoon. Wouldn't that make for an epic paddle? Bueller? Bueller? Andy? Got to sweet talk my wife and see if she's willing to tolerate this craziness on consecutive days Cheesy.

I was surprised to see you at first, then I thought about it and figured I really shouldn't be surprised at all.  Its was windy, rainy, and cold, and I had a great time. Nice day to get out.

Great paddling with you.  Wouldn't mind getting out in the snow just cant make it happen today..however.... if that changes Ill let you know!
