Rougin’ It 3

This weekend was quite a change from my normal life. I went kayaking/camping near Kingston, Ontario. There was a mix-up on Friday night and I wasn’t able to get to the campsite until the morning, so I ended up arriving in Kingston around 12:30AM, went to a bar for 15 minutes, drank two beers and then drove to a rest stop off the 401 and slept in the back of the Jeep. At first it was uncomfortable, but then I found the optimal sleeping position. My dog Mojo was with me, but she didn’t sleep very well because she woke up every time she heard a truck drive by.

We ended up portaging the canoes/kayak approximately 4KMs in 2 days, and canoeing/kayaking an estimated 30-40Kms as well. We came home a day early due to weather conditions. Saturday night was cold and wet, especially with a sleeping bag that doesn’t zip shut and I was using sweatshirts as a pillow but my clothes were pretty wet, so it was a little uncomfortable 😉

In other news, I broke open my piggy bank and counted $497.60.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

    This sounds like a great way to spend the weekend. The water in your shots looks wonderful – though I bet the water was really cold. Mojo looks very comfortable in the front of your kayak – that’s really cool that you take him along for the trip (and out on the water).

    Sadly, Mojo’s weekend was better than mine!

    Mojo looks weirded out!

    She looks cute sticking out of the car like that.
