Wow seems such a long time since I have been on the water too long. I have been very envious of Ga,s last month or two, Level 2 and also Level 1 Coach done with Pro Adventure in Llangollen, congratulations on passing kid and he,s certainly full of praise for the courses there...takes a bit to impress him as well.
For me well I had to say goodbye to my old Mondeo paddle wagon, 73k on it never raced or rallied and its fecked, and it ranged from "It might be the injectors" Nope injection specialist say not, right might be this valve, some money later and no better ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Time to say ta ta, and a new paddle wagon, fast cars, nope I want a van, tried to avoid white but to no avail, so the next best thing put stickers on it so done my new paddle wagon awaits 2014 and looking forward to some nights in it as well.
So whilst at Rockpool an invite to take some Tarans, well it would be rude to say no so off down the A55 with a Taran and Taran 16 which I,d paddled before but never over a lengthy period.
Right some time off this Friday Ga the winds are in excess of 20 mph its pishing down what shall we do, "Lets do some fitness and I,ll improve your paddling technique I,m a Level 1 coach you know"
