Now that we have joined the RA Canoe Camping Club I see how this is going to work. Although I always like my cars, bikes, canoes and SUVs clean and tidy, the Zombie mobile is just not going to be that way during summer. It will remain packed with life jackets, bail kits, anchors, fishing gear, paddles, tie ropes and straps,  paddle clothing bag, emergency food and bottle water not to mention snacks for Porthos.

It seems rather pointless to unload all this only to load it the next time we have a chance to go paddling (which WILL be tomorrow).

So last night we participated in a Thursday night paddle in Ottawa on the Rideau River with two other paddlers. It was peaceful and an excellent way to unwind and end the day…
