Good afternoon again to everyone! It's now Day
5 and the kayakers are presently en route to Merrickville.
They left Smith Falls around 1 pm this afternoon
and they estimate that it'll take them about 5-6
hours to paddle the 22 km to Merrickville. It's
about 30C today which means they'll be drinking
tonnes of gatorade and H20 to stay hydrated.
Last night, the team pulled into Safari Marina
around 5:30 pm. They were a pretty tired crew
but it's cool to see how the team's really started
to gel together the last couple of days.
After setting up their tents and sleeping gear,
everybody pulled up their chairs to spend a bit
of quality time together before supper. About
25 pizzas arrived for the hungry crew at 7 pm,
and they really hit the spot.
Gradually, people starting making their way to
have their first shower of the trip. When there's
only one shower, people tend to be pretty strategic
about it, picking times where there's likely no
lines or people flushing the toilets on them ---
like 2:30 am, right John? :)
