Kayaking Notes

Note 1: Last Thursday, I tried out my new Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx on a roughly seven-mile paddle at the north end of Percy Priest. It did a nice job of tracking the paddle, and the trip log was a good way of seeing just how fast the Essence goes. It cruises very easily around 5 mph. Max speed that day was 6.2 mph, but to get that extra 1 mph, I really had to push it.

Note 2: I'm appreciating more and more the Thule rack system on my pickup. It puts the 16.5' Essence over the center of the vehicle and so far (knock wood) has been a stable and secure transportation platform.
