I was really excited to get an email late yesterday from Richard Parkin, the editor of Ocean Paddler Magazine announcing that the latest issue is hot off the press and available for download (print copies were going out in a day or so). I have been waiting for this one as I had a feature article on kayaking around Michipicoten Island on Lake Superior. Since nobody except my mother would be ever interested in reading a pure trip diary type article I decided to talk more about the history of the island and why I think it’s one of the best places to paddle on Lake Superior. I wrote from the perspective that if somebody from the UK is looking to visit Canada and paddle a challenging route, Michicipicoten Island needs to be on your bucket list.

The Anatomy of a Sailor

I love this. Now somebody get creative and make one for kayaking.
Well it looks like Heisenberg is still sorting out some distribution issues. Australian police discovered a shipment of methamphetamine worth approximately $163 million (US) this week. What makes this slightly unique is that they found the nearly 400 pound haul stuffed in amongst a shipment of kayaks coming out of China. 19 of the 27 kayaks in the in the shipping container was filled with meth.

A Kayak Does Make a Fine Sofa

This guy just moved into his first apartment and hasn't gotten around to purchasing a sofa yet. He gets my vote for having the right priorities. Thinking about it a bit more, this reminds me of two other friends below who also had their priorities in order when they decided to trade the entertainment center for a canoe.
This past weekend I had the immense pleasure to be invited to teach at the 6th annual Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium in San Francisco. Organized by Matt Palmariello and Sean Morley, GGSKS is aimed at advanced beginners and intermediate paddlers who want to push the envelope and paddle in rougher waters in a welcoming and controlled environment.
