The Day before
As the song goes... The bags are all packed and we are ready to go. The pre-trip nerves are are starting to... well holy shit, we are leaving for 75 days! Tomorrow we depart from Bellingham and point the kayaks NW. Rain is in the forecast and its a bit colder then we anticipated. Hmmm? Should be interesting. All the fast water, wild animals and what am I most concerned about? Rain. Everything we've read implies that we will learn to enjoy paddling in the rain because the wind is typically diminished during a light rain. We will find out tomorrow.
Just wait.... Hang around a bunch of land lovers and the question will come up as soon as distances are discussed while on a boat. I've even heard seasoned Kaykers say "What's a nautical" so now it's our website... The window to our adventure.
