Well I'm out of paddling for 2 weeks due to a pinched nerve in my back that I've had for a month or so. Really upsetting as I have been doing all I can to avoid this so when spring sprung I'd be ready. The river is at a beautiful level for playing...I hope it hold this level until I can get out there. My therapist wants me to exercise. She suggested swimming...hee...hee...kayaking is alot easier but then the water in the pool is alot warmer.
