Hey Ya'll
The weather around here has been very nice for this time of year at around 78 degrees and since the Mrs's (missus'es ?) were off doing family obligations, the fella's and I went out for a pedal paddle romp on the good ol American River.

This river is only 2 blocks from my house and I have lived this close to it most of my life. Whether swimming, fishing, rope swinging, skimboarding, bridge jumping , rafting, riding bikes, or just skipping rocks, the river has woven itself into a lifetimes worth of fond memories of good times.

There are several long stretches to kayak if you want to launch and head up river before turning around or you can do a point to point stretch of 26 miles with two vehicles. If you are ever in the area be sure to check it out from the seat of your Hobie
Have fun out there

How Ya going Stringy :D
Glad you enjoy the post. I still really enjoy getting out in the water on our Hobie. Mrs Kep has been too busy with work this year so posts and trips have slowed. hope to do more next season. I have taught myself to windsurf and have been busy with that when she is unable to kayak.
G'Day, have fun out there and enjoy your summer season !!
