Digest Number 26

Laura Jackson

Sounds like fun! Here in Portland, our annual "Head of the Year" sort of fell apart due to icy roads and docks. The original plan included several single shells, 4's and a couple paddlers doing a 13 mile straight shot down the Willamette to a sister rowing club, shuttle back and have brunch. Travel conditions that morning made it so only 5 people, including 2 cox'n's showed up. The three rowers did about 500 meters upstream, coasted back to the dock and headed for Starbucks.

I chose not to drive, as our street was really icy, so my stepson and I took our mountain bikes out and surveyed the winter wonderland that way.

Happy New Year to all!
