I think I'm gonna make it...

I'm finally beginning to believe that I may have my boat (mostly) finished in time for R2K1! Might even have time to slap a little varnish and paint on to protect from UV. Won't have the compass mount or foot bilge pump installed, but at least it should be paddleable.

I had made camping reservations a while back, so I'll be in the campground (probably have space to share, by the way).

I also plan on taking a few days after to poke about the area. I've never been up to that neck o' the woods (water?) before. I'm hoping to connect with an outfitter/guide or someone who can show me some pleasant day paddles in the general area. Any suggestions, or shall I just count on making connections at the Rendezvous?

Looking forward to meeting some of you folk. And I'll try not to cringe too much at my ugly duckling next to the swans many of you will have there.
