Yes the dreaded Australian winter. It’s nearly 12 degrees and freezing cold. Hooray Chillcheater! If I don’t paddle this weekend I’ll totally forget what to do. I’m thoroughly demotivated and haven’t seen water in weeks. It will require a supreme act of willpower to get Eco on the Volvo and make a move. There’s nobody on the Lake and I haven’t spotted a kayaker out there in ages except for one bloke on a sit-on-top that looked a lot like an oversized Esky lid (the kayak, not the bloke).
The other demotivator is that since falling for the Assateague, I don’t look at Eco the same way now. I feel like I’m cheating on it but it’s not that I want to get rid of Eco, I want both. Maybe I just need to rekindle the relationship. I have to since my credit card debt is embarrassing and it will take a good while before I can trot off to Expedition Kayaks with my hard earned. My mate Dobbo is on the verge of taking the plunge with a boat of his own and the Valley Aquanaut is probably perfect for him so I’ll satisfy myself with that. I hope you appreciate the business Mark Sundin, you owe me a test paddle in the Valley!
