So it was a quick trip up to the East Coast Kayak Symposium this last weekend. I got a ride up with Mike Robinson and arrived Friday evening in time for Brian Smiths presentation of his Pacific Horizon Film. Great to see local boys Richard Davis and Dave White up on the big screen. Even better that Dave was sporting his SC&K cap.
The evening was spent tailgating with Brian Smith, Nigel Foster, Dale Williams, Michael Grade and a flask of Pappy Van Winkle curtesy of Mr Robinson. Brian is coming to the East coast to film a sequel to his PH vid and plans to be here around October. Hopefully we can wrestle up a few gators for him. On Saturday we strolled among the vendors saying hi to various friends and associates in our paddling world. I then spent a couple of hours at the P&H booth rapping with my homies, while Mike passed his 'ability to focus' theshold. We fled the scene before tea time.
