    Did my first paddle on the Susquehanna Saturday. I got about two miles from home when I noticed quite a bit of water in the bottom of my boat. I pulled up to a flat, rocky part of the bank to dump it out. I knew where the water was coming from, the keel right at the stern. It has been scraping/banging rocks on the bottom of the Susquehanna off and on for the last 35 years. I knew it was wearing thin. I could see daylight through a hole about a half inch long, eighth of an inch wide. I turned for home, stopping to empty the boat a couple times. I think a little marine epoxy should alleviate the leak. Was nice to be back on the water.
    Leave no turn unstoned!

    Hit the river at 6AM this morning, it's usually nice and calm that early in the day, not today, windy as Hell, must be the front moving in. If I had a sail I could've sailed all the way home, the wind was blowing directly upstream most of the way. This resulted in some pretty big waves. I got turned sideways once and had to paddle to the shore to straighten the boat out. I wouldn't say I came close to capsizing, but broadside to the waves is not a good position to be.

    When I got to the dam I noticed something unusual. At first I thought the sign read "Pueblo Art". I had to fight the urge to chuck some rocks at the "art". I'm curious to see if it is still there when I return.

    I missed you by a day... We were in Idaho Springs today. I did this, though:
