Our time at the lake on Friday was memorable to say the least. Pretty sure it was the closest Em and I have ever come to A) capsizing our yak B) drowning and C) yelling every 4 letter expletive we know.
Em was rocking her new Penn State jersey.
Em yelled, "Ge ready to bitch up, Loerke!" (Have I told you how much I love this girl?).
Before we knew it, waves starting washing over the bow of our kayak.
Then water started pouring into our cockpits. Kind of like a firehose but not as fun.
I don't think we've ever been so thankful for our electric bilge pump. Watching it push water out of our kayak gave us hope of actually making it back to the dock.
Em then pulled our kayak up onto the grass and volunteered to run back and get the car.
Em came back our adrenaline was still through the roof. Who would have thought the wind could have picked up that quickly? I never thought I'd say this, but after Friday's experience I'd much rather paddle in the cold and rain than in the sunshine and wind. I now have a new respect for that which I cannot see.
This Friday Em and I leave for Austin to spend time working on our kayak and paddling with our friend West. Last week he completing his 16th Texas Water Safari finish and placed 1st in men's solo. Congratulation's, buddy!
We did want to let you know that if you're interested in making a donation to our race or the McKeaigg Family adoption we'd encourage you to do so in the next two weeks. Soon we will be taking our kayak to get all tatted up with our sponsors names and logos and wouldn't want you to miss out!
Only 33 more days!
