Tent Pole Broke & Lost a Water Bootie

Tent Pole Broke & Lost a Water Bootie

Florida’s Panhandle – Kayaking Adventure

Laying there on my back during the middle of the night and listening to fish jumping and what ever other strange sounds I wasn’t used to… one of my tent poles broke, ugh!

The other day I had noticed the aluminum pole cracking in several spots, so I duct taped them hoping it would hold until I could get new ones. Nope, didn’t last.

With the tent half collapsed, I flipped over and fell back asleep, only to be woken up a short time later by a Barge. Man, those things are loud with bright spot lights pointing at the river banks. My tent lit up like it was the middle of the day.

The next morning, I discovered that I had not properly secured my water boots to the kayak in case a wave should hit and knock something over into the water, ugh! I did keep the other one for “show & tell”.

Oh well, the adventure continues!
