Thanks for the advice everyone. Seriously, very good things to consider, that's why I asked. I thought my post made it somewhat clear that I wasn't a complete bonehead, but I guess not. Of course we will wear pfd's, stay close to shore, watch the weather and tides, carry my SPOT and not take any risks we're not comfortable with.
If the good Lord takes me home... so be it. Nice try sierra dragon and mark oathout... but I'm still not scared.
If anything your doom and gloom makes me want to do it even more. I had to laugh at the one about me dying and my girlfriend hooking up with someone who will keep her safe.
ksaye... thank you for the positive response... at first I questioned having two kayaks, but assume that's in case one tips?
