Daren the "Stove Deacon"

I never cared much for a stove that needed to be primed :o

The "Stove Deacon" is an exception, I like him :D

You got me! But, the key words are "If" you finished off two bottles and"what you"might"see when looking in your signal mirror. Lord only knows how many more teeth you might loose staggering into trees and falling onto rocks. :lol: :lol:

I'm curious, if it took you two days to paddle home, could you drop anchor and slide down into your kayak for a rock-a-bye sleep? :lol: :lol:

I figured that! Storage space to the max. So, you would have to drop anchor, roll your sleeping pad and bag out on the deck and strap yourself down and hope for calm waters. :lol: :lol:

just recently there was talk about a woman paddler circumnavigating Australia by kayak. i heard she slept in her boat, sitting up, on some of the longer trips. she's a bit of a legend amongst kayakers. Freya Hoffmiester (sp).
