I tried something new last night...signed up for the Beginner Paddle session at Kayak Pittsburgh, run by Venture Outdoors.
MAN that was fun. It's been a while since I did much with my upper body, and it felt really good to, as it were, blow out the dust and cobwebs.
I'm fairly incompetent at this point, but I definitely want to do it again. Probably need to sign up for a VO membership, just to economize on kayak rental fees.
Hmmm...should think about setting up a regular "pedal and paddle" event. Ride a nice 30-40 miler through the North Hills, then grab some kayaks and head up the river for a bit, maybe stop for a picnic lunch somewhere before heading back down to town.
