2024 A Year of Water and Ponies.

It’s hard to imagine being out on the water as I write this in the heart of a winter cold snap on the plains. Currently it is -10 out with a ‘feels like’ temperature of -40 degrees Fahrenheit, couple that with a few recent snow storms and it is brutal out. But here I am dreaming of kayaking, canoeing and warm weather.

Due to various reasons I did not get the kayak out once in 2023 and I vow to change that this year. I don’t know if I have it in me to make it to one of the major kayak races or a large multi day adventure though. But I can still make it out to the local rivers and streams this year.

Next up we are planning a backpacking trip to see the wild ponies in the Grayson Highlands in May. This looks like a beautiful trail that should be an amazing experience.
