Should have been renamed as Intro to Heat and how to
prevent heat related illness….. OK maybe I’m just a little
over the top on this but boy was it hot!
We had lots of water and tea and fruit and more water and
more snacks and more water, and that was before we
even got into a kayak!
We managed to get through the ground part of the
instruction and no one passed out … from the heat!
So we made it to the water, and if your not aware….
while in a kayak and on the water you get the sun direct and then you get the sun again, in the reflection from the water, thank goodness for the even slight wind………
And the water in the ice chest and the tea and the fruit…
Do you see a pattern????
And just to address and repeating issue we get…
No we don’t lecture till the students are blue in the face…
We Lecture till the instructors are blue in the lips!
No really…. it’s the zinc but just with a cool new color,
kind of reminds you of water..doesn’t it!
Anyway, we got the skills done …..
And moved on to the rescues….
Where we train
on dry ground first,
before we head to the water..and go ahead and test these
guys, I personally guarantee they all can exit a skirt, almost
as fast as they can hydrate too!
Did I mention to drink water??? Just checking….
and speaking of checking, checkout the photo’s below…
Thanks to all who paddled with us at the lake and
remember this very nice lady in smiling
She got out without falling….
She and her family get a FREE rental included w/class

She’s smiling because….
besides learning about kayaks and kayaking,
besides being safe, besides being well hydrated
