Madawaska Whtie Water Kayaking: Barry's Bay, Canada

In my quest to kayak the Grand Canyon, I joined the KCCNY in order to improve my paddling skills. Improve is probably the wrong word since at the time I joined the skills were nonexistent. None the less, I journeyed with the club to Massachusetts and there I found out just how much I sucked. So, I took my friend Joe’s advice, and took a 9 hour drive from Jersey City to Barry’s Bay Ontario Canada and took a 5 day kayak class with the Madawaska Kanu Centre. Yeah, I don’t get where they got the spellings for ‘canoe’ and ‘center’ but hey, I’m from Jersey!

Me on top, my class below:

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."    — Robert A. Heinlein
