Never go down on equipment

It was a bitterly cold day. For some reason I had an urge to visit the ducks down by the old mill. I enjoyed the scenery for a moment when suddenly I heard voices from under the road where a small passage allow people to sail through in canoes.
To my surprise a stand up paddler was on his way under the road and two more followed him.
The last stand-up paddler made me speechless. He was wearing plain clothes, as well as an overcoat. A crazy excursion if you ask me and yet I could not help laughing.
We have a saying in Danish: Never go down on equipment.
In this case you can take it literally 🙂

    • Haha! I’m looking forward to see some pictures, Peter 🙂 … though it was awful enough taking the photos without gloves 🙂

  1. This would have made me laugh too! Where I live in Colorado, we have a very large reservoir that is filled with paddle boarders in the summer, but I have never seen one in the winter! Brave, confident people, those!! 🙂

    • You’re right, you really have to be confident to paddle when wearing plain clothes. Note that the ice was too thin to carry a grown man 🙂 🙂
