The number of days you've been out in a boat this year is less than the number of boats in the garage.

You know you need to get out paddling more when.....you see a car pass by with kayaks on the roof, and stop wondering where they have been....or going to.

or no longer having trouble passing water...for a look at the level !!!

When rather than go paddling you sunbathe till lunch when your kit is fully dry, and then go paddling! Sorry was the best I could do, been paddling all week, thought this was a paddling forum, my bad.

It could be worse, at least you have Canadian humour (humor?), you could be living south of the border in the Excited States of America, then you'd really miss us!

To be fair one of my fave stand-up comedians is Canadian so I guess it's a just a matter of getting tuned in.
How the hell did we get on to the merits of differing cultures humour from paddling?
Anyhoos...
