merry christmas to me
yesterday i got my christmas present and even though it was a little late, i was still very excited. it is a used pirogue. i took it out today to see if i could keep from tipping. of course i picked the coldest day of the year to try it out. i felt very comfortable in it and only felt a little unsure when i would switch from my knees to my butt which i did several times to try and get use to. the boat has a few small leaks which i plan to fix in the next few weeks with a friend who does fiberglass work. im thinking of trying a hunting trip tomorrow morning on a small locale lake. what do you guys think? now or never? or should i have a few more practice trips?
should have brought along my pellet gun to take out some of the local feral ducks.
