Hey Tim! 'Sokay, ya know. If we can talk kayaking, y'all can talk Jeepin'. (Our Cherokee Limited will be delivered in April and the Sahara is up for sale. No off-roading for us.)

As for 'yakkin', our scheduled weekly paddle for tomorrow was cancelled. Cold temps, high winds, and a 2-3' chop...does not sound at all like fun! So Manatee Park on the Orange River will have to wait till next week. I'm told the manatees are gathering there now, where the water is warmer than elsewhere.

The next paddle is to be on the Imperial River north of here. It's an easy trip and pretty, in a sort of semi-suburban way, as I remember. Part of it is in wooded areas, upstream from our put-in point, especially as the river narrows. A fun paddle.

As for me, it's time to toddle off to bed, perchance to dream. Night-night, Muteys!

Cheers!
Sue

So true! Sic 'em, Barb!

Steve, I'm so sorry to hear you are lagging in your recovery. (See? I told you "chicken!" soup!) Smart man, to get back to the MD. All the best.

Cheers!
Sue

Sue I'm kind of confused. Do you paddle up stream or down. Or up or down and back to the start point. If it was me I would have to paddle or drift down stream, and have a pickup crew to save me.

Heh heh you know how to put a thread to sleep Dennis.... everyone is still snoozing. I woke up early today and couldn't go back to sleep. Got too many projects on my mind.
I need to get my volunteer hours tallied and entered for my Master Gardeners group, need to plan this summers garden with the appropriate week off in April while I am gone, and put Christmas deco away ( lights all disconnected already so folks don't think I'm hanging on to that Christmas spirit forever...). I have more projects than energy.

Cheers !!!
It can be 30 degrees outside and I can still drip water from the pores.

Sorry, like I told Herb, water leaking is not funny. Hopefully I want need that repair anytime soon, but thanks for the info offer. But don't worry I have help coming, Steve is bringing me a self help book, " Making and keeping friends on the Internet "[...]
If Steve wrote the book himself, you are going to have the same problem as you do now!

Waaaaay cool.
Wowser! I have a jeepny and didn't even know it. My 2013 Lincoln MKX has a hill holder. When you come to a stop on the hill and apply the brake, the vehcile will stay in that position when you remove your foot from the brake. It stays that way until you apply the accelerator.

What wonderful marvels we all have.

Oh! Forgot to say, my 1950 Studebaker, standard transmission with overdrive had a little different way. When you came to a stop you had to put the clutch pedal in, or of course you would stall the engine. If you let it out about 2-3 inches you could take your foot off the brake and be ready to apply acceleration. Wonderful toys back then.

It's a conspiracy to undermine the GC! First the Canacks send down this frigid single digit weather, now dem Texans are sending over snow. It's going to be a job but our highway department has both of their snow plows running so we'll have it cleaned up before you get here. Nice try!

Morning Tim !!!

Now, I say, now Tim, don't be getting all nervous and stuff about the GC we are all made of tougher stuff than that. When y'all wear out your snowplows I'm sure ya can borrow some from some place. All of us here in AZ will try to send you some sunshine.

Cheers !!!

Obviously you've got an Automatic here...mine was a 99' Wrangler Sport 6, AT...& would never be able to do this with her.

But I've got a question; is all this in the manual with each model year car?

My car has the toad instructions in the manual ONLY in 2005 - 6. Then Honda started having legal trouble with less-than-intelligent persons who couldn't follow instructions, and blamed Honda. So later the info was excluded from the manuals, but those in the know continue the same toad practices with their Elements, because nothing had actually changed about the cars themselves. The difference being that Honda's position was: "You're on your own, now!"

Don, I believe you may be thinking of white water kayaking. What Sue and I do is calm, serene water kayaking. It's the lovely paddle and glide along pace of a leisurely walk. We enjoy the scenery, not an adrenalin rush. We leave that stuff to you guys.

I put in and exit at different places here, but just because it's easier on my knees. The distance between the dock and the beach is maybe 300 yards. No retrieval crew required.

OK, y'all can talk about jeepin' again.

I think we may need to send Annie a care package. How many days now has she endured a sickly Steve? I fear that her sanity may be in jeopardy. At the very least, Steve will owe her a full day spa package with all the appropriate pampering.

By his own admission, Steve is a whimp when sick or injured. Some of you may recall his flying leap down the steps of Bonita Bounder last summer which cured his rotator cuff, but what was it now? Oh yes, cracked a few ribs. And now H1N1 Flu? I know he got it eating that raw fish.

Steve, there's this new fangled invention. We call it fire. It's designed to kill germs in food and it makes it really tasty as well.

Get better quicker my friend. It's not as much fun to pick on ya when you're
