Hi all,

Love the countdown... (#7 was catching flying fish I believe...)

But Don raises two valid points...

i.) Running downwind would be neat. I did this when I was just learning how to sail, and it was a lot of fun. (Unfortunately, the tree-lined shore drew up too quickly and I was too stupid to let go of the sheet... You can imagine the rest...)

ii.) Don also mentioned the issue of visability in busy waterways... I used to live in Caribou ME, and the locals would sometimes attach large whip antennas (with a bright tennis ball on the tip) to their cars to lend visability in a winter terrain of large snowbanks... Has anyone actually tried such a thing with a kayak?

Anyway... Back to the "Top Ten"

#6: Something to do with Dolly Parton...
