I'm here..... being very still.
So that makes at least 3 of us.
Still paddling when I get the chance. Solo these days more often than
not. Been a long time since I've peeked in here though. Thought I'd do
my part in trying to keep this thread alive.

I am still here. The charter people tell me the sea kayakers are getting
older and less young people are taking it up. Maybe what is happening is we
are all dying. I will be 75 this summer and still kayaking and pack rafting
but for how much longer. Maybe there will be kayaking in Heaven or Hell
whereever I end up.

You're not very much older than me. When I was young, I figured I
would know when I was old when I had more dead friends than live ones.
But I was still middle age when I past that milestone. So I bumped it
up to 2X as many dead friends as live ones. But it didn't take long to
blow right on past that. So I bumped it to 10X. and I don't think I'm
there yet. Don't know for sure though cuz I've lost count.
Maybe I should come up with a different system.
Paddle on people!

I'm in Seward! :)

Glad to know you're still paddling. As am I. I moved here four years ago
with the intention of paddling these lovely Alaskan waters. I'm now 62, but
I insist on maintaining my immaturity, so I just carry on. :)

Gee, I may be the oldest in the crowd! (Don't use that word o..l..d..,
Edwin) It's relative anyway. Not doing much paddling for logistic
reasons, but a lot of camping all over for longer vacations.

I love Bear Glacier. Got there 2 times last year. Usually 3 nights
camping. Big collapse of the Glacier last year. It lost 2,500 feet. I am
getting worried because it appears it is starting to get commercialized.
Saw a pretty Brown bear last year during the early August trip.

Actually, there's a solution for that. But one needs to read their
manual under the "Solutions for filtering out usenet spam" Section.
Problem is, there's not much left to read when there's no spam to see.
Not sure what the solution to that might be.

I remember when Boatertalk started and succeeded unintentionally to take over for Rec.Boats.Paddle.
