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 🙂
