Get those light action rods and beetle spins ready. Oh yeah, and our favorite: CRICKETS. I’m thinking this is a good way to go for the fishing portion on things on the Santee River Paddle/Camp. I don’t want to mess with catfish.
Check this one out. And yes, I know it’s adjacent to Monkey Island.
I crave cypress tree filled swamps.
175 miles of paddle trails within an hour’s drive from my house? Sure. I guess I’ll have a look.
Includes an interesting 3 day paddle/camp plan for Lake Jocassee. I can taste those sweet delicious trout!
Yeah, so Jocasee is fed by a bunch of WATERFALLS. You can’t gird your loins against the unbridled majesty.
i’m 100% sure i can’t complete any of this except the 5k in 50 minutes at this moment in time, but it’s a cool thing to work incrementally up to. and anyway, once you’re able to do it easy, you’re prettymuch fit as we need to be.
i suggest thinking up an aquatic paddling version of this too, with maybe a skills-related kicker at the end instead of push-ups and sit-ups. like maybe “paddle 5k, then you have x minutes to do 50 mountain climbers, tie 5 crucial knots perfectly, and hang your hammock. you know how brain shit shuts down in times of physical stress. i think that’d be a great way to preserve brain elasticity AND i guarantee your lorchcraft will be on point.
i think if we busted both the land and water ones twice a week til april we would absolutely crush Cumberland or whatever island we wanted. (bearing in mind there’s no way i’m doing anything with 50lbs on my back for the foreseeable)
what say you?
website claims 40 degrees, but i’m skeptical. killer price point though. might make a good transition seasonal option.
