I’ve been spending time this week watching YouTube tutorials on paddling and white water solo canoe technique. There’s also plenty to consider about safety on the water. Short of pool time with a pro, it’s worth the viewing. If, like me, you’re an intermediate level canoeist and planning to paddle more challenging waters, there’s lot’s of room for improvement. February in the Great North provides limited opportunities to up your skill level so why not take paddle in hand and try some dry land practice. Be sure to keep your drapes closed or the neighbors might have yet one more thing to talk about. In addition, I’ve got some more photos of our February, 2007 trip along the canoe route.
