Jensen's maiden voyage

Saturday was a perfect day to get out on the water for a little fishing. Water was cold, which kept us close to shore, since falling in would have killed us. Fish didn't bit either. Still, a bad day on the water is still better than just about everything else.

A new canoe

A couple weeks ago, I picked up a 1991 Jensen 18 tandem canoe. It was in decent chape, but needed a little help. Fortunately it was cheap. Now, after a little elbow grease and urethane, it really shines.

It's getting closer

I can almost feel the impending death of winter now.....It's getting close, and I can't wait.
It is sounding like Fargo ND will be innuduated by another massive flood this spring as the snow melts, and hopefully they can get the dikes down in time for a few training runs with the canoes before the local racing season heats up.
The ice is beginning to crack along the edges of the river, and if I can ever get my camera to work I could maybe get some pictures.

Whats on the plate?

New for this year, beside plenty of recreational paddling, and organizing and participating in events with the local paddling group, I decided to participate in the 2011 Missouri River 340 (340 miles), and the South Dakota Kayak Challenge (70 miles).
Those will be my only two ultra-marathon events, but I do hope to participate in some more shorter races.
A few wins to my credit in my QCC 700x, but to date no wins in the Kruger Sea Wind. I haven't really raced it much though. I think that boat is showing more and more potential every time I use it.
