Everybody was desperate to get water under their hulls! Unfortunately the day a couple of canoers got trapped and eventually capsised and were immersed for quite a while until being rescued and restored to their warmer selves. All's well that ends well!
But for us kayakers it was all fun and games :-) The sea kayakers are some colleagues from ISK who came out to do a TV piece on how to boat safely at this time of the year.
Now, I had never really thought about it, until my colleague warned me that drifting ice is actually quite dangerous: Give it a wide birth, make sure you're dressed for immersion in ice cold water and make sure, that your wearing your pfd and otherwise, HAVE FUN! :-)
I am Bavarian! I came to Minnesota in May 2002 after living in England for a while.
I get a kick out of trying new things. New experiences for me can be very low key like collecting seeds on the prairie or high key like mushing a dog team.
