Winter! It's gone already? I can barely believe it, but none the less, I'm ready for paddling season to begin.
Ski season was wonderful, I wrapped it up with a 20 Kilometer ski sesson, and I know I'll miss the lovely snow we had this year.
At the same time, I have been packing. On Wednesday, our family hops in the Subaru yet again to journey to North Carolina. We'll make a pit stop in Missourri for the Missourri Whitewater Championships (a great race on a gorgeous river), then continue on to Nantahala, North Carolina where we will dwell for two weeks, paddling and training for the US Open, and the US Junior Team Trials. The US Junior Team Trials will determine weather or not I go to Europe this summer, so keep your fingers crossed for me!
And last, but most definitely not least, Canoecopia was this past weekend. Canoecopia is the largest canoe and kayak expo in the world, and it is hosted by my sponsor, Rutabaga Paddlesports Shop...all in all, it is a complete blast, a time to reconnect with old sponsors, meet new sponsors, and meet a heck of a lot of cool, fun people.
So, follow me in my journeys. I'll keep you updated, as I'm going to try to write while I'm down south, and as always, I love to hear from you!
