BIRTHDAY!!!

 

Kristin has been persuaded into repeating last year's Birthday celebration at the Knickerbocker!!! (blame Brad)  7pm this Thursday!


==Brad's wet & wild, ascending, abnormal, bouncy, bio-inspired, annoying corner of weird stuff==

What do you get when you combine a Kayaker and a Backpacker?

Get your mind out of the gutter, I was referring to Hydrotouring!

This new sport is evolving thanks to a mono-fin called the Lunocet.  It was originally engineered to allow humans to breach the water like dolphins, and can reach speeds of 8 mph (2x faster than Michael Phelps).

Don't have $1,800 to buy one?  They'll loan you one if you go on their next Hydrotouring event:
