Before getting on the water we mounted our new GoPro cameras which give us the capability to film HD video or take photos every 2, 5, 10, 30 or 60 seconds. (Insert more AWESOME right here).
After connected our bilge pump and checked our steering cables we were good to go.
Once we were on the water it wasn't long before the blue sky turned gray, our cockpits were soaked, and our GPS gave us an encouraging read of 3.2 mph. (Pretty sure Em and I can crawl faster than that after a Thanksgiving feast).
Nonetheless, we still had a blast and enjoyed the workout we received from the infamous headwind. (Which sometimes makes us want to junk punch it all the way to Antarctica).
This week's NEW Race Sponsors:
Fundraising Update: Last week's donation from Mike & Jess now gives us a total of $9,800 raised for our race and the McKeaigg Family Adoption. This is AMAZING! Only $2,200 left to go. Please let us know if you'd like to make a donation and we'll gladly add your name to our kayak as we paddle across the state of Missouri. Donations of $100.00 will still get your company logo on our kayak and blog sidebar through the end of July.
Happy Freakin Monday, Homies! Did you play in the rain this weekend?

PS, normal letters will resume tomorrow. Having Mr. Loerke home so much lately has made it difficult to find the time to write when all we want to do is play! Hope you understand.
