We got blown off the water on the last proposed trip to Pavilion.

Therefore, this really is the last trip to Pavilion this season. Fishing should be good around Pavilion Key. Launch from Chokoloskee by 2 pm, Sat, Apr 6. Return Tue at about 2:00 pm. Of course, weekenders can come back Sunday and should plan to arrive in Chokoloskee about 1:00 pm.

Leaving on Friday, Apr 5, is also a possibility.

It is only 11 days to lift-off, so make a decision soon.

So far, we are going to have an all-star group for this event. In order of age/beauty/intelligence or maybe the inverse.

Toby Nipper--Guru #1 and famous WaterTribe distance adventure kayaker. Toby has completed the Ultimate Florida event (1200 mi around Florida).
Rick Parks--Bright guy, fun stories. Software engineer and business man. He has shown some questionable judgment, in MHO, by coming out of semi-retirement to manage a University of Central Florida business incubator program in Apopka, FL. He has shown some good decision making to come on this trip.
Alex Oancea--great sea kayaker and one of 2 people in this group to do the WT EC2013.
Josh Morgan--another great sea kayaker--last year he was a great Hobie AI sailor. He also did the WT EC2013.
Those are the men.

The center of attraction will, of course, be these women:
Terry Wilson--sitting on the fence about purchasing an AI. Will this trip push her over the edge?? Time will tell, but if she makes it to Pavilion, she can get a taste of AI sailing.
Nancy Wellman--the Ice Queen from Taos Ski Valley in northern New Mexico. Newly returned to FL to thaw out and explain why she spends most of the winter in near zero weather.

Of course, yours truly will also be in attendance to keep a lid on things and catch fish.

We are going to have an all-star group for this event. Same order as before--just adding names.

Toby Nipper--Guru #1 and famous WaterTribe distance adventure kayaker. Toby has completed the Ultimate Florida event (1200 mi around Florida).
Rick Parks--Bright guy, fun stories. Software engineer and business man. He has shown some questionable judgment, in MHO, by coming out of semi-retirement to manage a University of Central Florida business incubator program in Apopka, FL. He has shown some good decision making to come on this trip.
Alex Oancea--Another software specialist, great sea kayaker and one of 2 people in this group to do the WT EC2013.
Josh Morgan--another great sea kayaker--last year he was a great Hobie AI sailor. He also did the WT EC2013.
Joshua Bowers--Josh and his wife, Denise, took time out from work to do the WT UM2013.
Those are the men.

The center of attraction will, of course, be these women:
Terry Wilson--sitting on the fence about purchasing an AI. Will this trip push her over the edge?? Time will tell, but if she makes it to Pavilion, she can get a taste of AI sailing.
Nancy Wellman--the Ice Queen from Taos Ski Valley in northern New Mexico. Newly returned to FL to thaw out and explain why she spends most of the winter in near zero weather.
Denise Parris--Joshua's partner in the WT UM203. Strong paddler and real athlete.
Cecilia Bowers--Joshua's Mom, Professor, Rollins College. First timer to Pavilion.
Erika Fitzsimmons--Long-time friend, strong paddler.

Of course, yours truly will also be in attendance trying to keep a lid on things and catch fish--going to need help from Rick to catch enough fish.
