    Nice video. Agree, I am also a big fan of the Hennesy hammock. Though I prefer the 3x3 DD tarp to go along with it. The hennesy tarp just does not cut it when it really pours down.

    Make sure to add some floatation (float bags/pool noodles) to your boat. Will have your boat take on less water in the chance you flip with the displacement.

    I also have a Hennessy Hammock and it's great. My only complaint is...I got the one with the bottom opening and my bug net does not unzip. So, it works but if you're trying to lay in the hammock with others and converse it would be nice to not have a bug net between you and your friends. So the side entrance with the zipper on the rain fly I think would be better.

    Luke this is just me but I always say its the thought that counts. No water cops were gonna be out there just take the pole and buy a license the next day they get their (well deserved) money either way haha. That's just me though. Really fun video I really like these kayaking videos.

    Luke I love everything about this channel and you really know what you’re talking about.And I have learned sooo much from you and your channel.
    BUT....I must say that your paddle technique is terrible,and that is why you get blisters.(you don’t need those foam handles)
    And you are holding your paddle upside down☺️
    No offense!!!!
    Super awesome episode!👍👍👍👍
    Take care!!!

    Hello Luke, and hello to your family too!
    I've been following you for several years now, and I really enjoy your content. You asked, towards the end of the video, to let you know if we enjoyed this kayak adventure, and I for one definitely did! :)
    I'm a quite young man, reaching my 25th year soon, and a very avid outdoorsman. Unfortunately over a quite daunting adventure, I ended up damaging both knees and ankles (confirmed by several doctors, and myself, since I'm also a doctor, just graduated), and therefore can't go for long walking treks. I resorted to canoeing/kayaking, and still go out as much as I can. So if you do enjoy being on the water too, and would like to do more of that, I would definitely enjoy watching such adventures, and surely there are others out there with similar opinions
    Take care, hello to you all!
    PS : apologies if i made mistakes, I'm french, and as you probably know, french and english hardly ever go well together!

    Camera is great the sound from the built in mic is great. I have been browsing your videos and this looked like the only kayaking video. It was really good seeing you wearing a PFD they do save lives. I was noticing the temps and when you are paddling in cold weather or on cold water its very important to dress for the water, we never plan to go swimming when paddling but there is always a chance even for the best. In 40 to 50 degree water you only have about 30 to 60 mins before hypothermia set in. Always make sure you can get back in your boat to swim to the shore dragging your kayak is very hard. The paddle shaft pads are nice but a good pair of paddling gloves lets you change hand positions and can let you get more leverage on the paddle plus some have an SPF rating and can keep your hands some what warmer. One last thing and Im sorry I just notice this all the time when seeing other paddlers. If you look at your paddle the name of the company is printed on them, this printing should be up and readable not upside down. The reason being is the design of the paddle, it was hard to tell but it looks like one edge is longer then the other. The long edge should be up, when you paddling sometimes the blade will flutter when being pulled hard. The angle at end and the slight vee shape on the face of the blade help to stop this also they help the blade stay perpendicular to the pull on the blade requiring less effort to hold and control the paddle. Just some thoughts thanks for the time to make and post the videos

    Luke, brother! So good to see you get out on the yak!! I have a question for you about your filter: since that lake is used for motor boating, is gas and oil contamination a concern when filtering water for drinking? I'm glad I saw you use that water, since I live on a lake that is excessively used for motor boats. I'm curious if I can safely use these standard backpacking filters to drink the water from the lake, or if I need something more complex and serious. Thanks for any info man, keep up the great videos!!

    Get those oil leaks fixed or get rid of the vehicle. I thought I'd keep my good old Silverado forever but driving and being poisoned by oil(you couldn't really smell it all the time)is not tolerable.

    I just finished trekking the 184.5 miles on the C&O towpath from DC into Cumberland, the scenery along the Potomac was majestic. Last year when I found his wonderful trail I followed Google Maps chosen path from the Cleveland Clinic to the steps of the White house to celebrate my 1st year heartiversary and my 63rd birthday. This year was my return trip home. www.wusa9.com/video/entertainment/television/programs/great-day-washington/heart-transplant-recipient-walks-from-ohio-to-dc-to-save-lives/65-8124021

    Luke, another great video bud. The new camera is looking/sounding great! Love the kayak video. Something about the calmness of the water, it's great stuff. I'm going to be hitting hanging rock with a buddy of mine in a couple weeks if you're interested in coming with. We would to have you. Take care, my friend.
