Paddling in the Snow!

This is my first ever post. I will follow up with more info about me and what I do later. For today, let's just focus on what I did today.

For those that don't know me, I live in Coastal North Carolina near Camp Lejeune. That means I experience mild winters (usually). Today, however, we were the gracious recipients of a winter storm that gave us ice and about 2" of snow. Glorious, wet, sticky, fluffy snow!!! I have always loved the winter and since I live in the south, I don't get enough of it.

So, because of the storm, I got released from work early and on my way home I put my truck into a ditch. (it's been too long since I had to drive in snow). Anyhow, after I got pulled back onto the road, I made it home without further incident and decided to go canoeing for the remainder of the afternoon. Enjoy some pics from that and like I said above, I will tell more about what I do and how I entertain myself later.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hey James,
    Met your Dad on the HOG Route 66 run in 2001. He wasn't going to ride to Oatman, AZ but we talked him into it. Canoeing is a lot of fun, but paddling one you built yourself has to be a blast. I did a lot of it in my younger days & taught it at Scout Camp. Enjoyed your blog, keep it up. When you get a minute please look at my website: www.crocodilelile.com. Looking forward to seeing your canoe when finished.
