Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to wish all my U.S. readers a very Happy Thanksgiving… and if this is a holiday anywhere else, my best wishes to you also.

Regardless of location, its always a good day to remember things that we should be thankful for, and people that we should tell them how much they have helped us.

Washed out to sea?

>>> Washed out to sea?

Missed the deadline for entry, but this is an interesting thought exercise, and the results might be something to watch.

The Scenario: You’re an experienced and avid open-ocean kayaker, setting off early from your favorite coastal launch point for a restorative and invigorating day on the water. You’ve checked with the Weather Channel and the National Weather Service, and both have predicted sunny weather, slight clouds, and virtually no wind. So, after donning some sunblock and checking your gear and supplies, you’re off.

You wake up with limited supplies, having been washed out to sea. What do you do?
