What is the meaning of this?!?

I just came back from an evening of poker having one straight and one flush, Ace high and everything, after the other beaten by one BOAT after another!!!

"Boat" (also know as full house)

What is the universe trying to tell me?

That I should have ignored that weatherforecast and demoed that Project 52 playboat instead? Definitely!

That I should not have passed on no less than three splendiferous paddling opportunities this weekend?!? Two with fabulous females and one with a mystery male...

Well the latter was for a good reason: I need to recharge, build energy reserves so I'll have a better charc, physically and even more important mentally the next time I'm on the river or for my next crack at rolling!

Well I hope it meant that I should buy that CR250 river running playboat, because I just did :-)

That's her and in this very color :-)

Congrats on the new boat! I've never paddled a crossriver but they seem like great kayaks!

Thanks! I haven't had her out yet, since I am trying to concentrate on this work thing (SIGH!). The 250 is really bigger than I actually need it, but I thought it might be an easier transition from my high comfort volume creeker.

Natalie gave me some great tips and...erm... pointed out this video by Ken Whiting to me. Cool! Now there's a lot of fun for me to be had on the flat to start with and until the Verm is back up.
