Packed up and ready

The primary reason I fish is because the possibilities are endless. Kayak fly fishing is exciting but family time means I need to expand the opportunities beyond fly fishing. So on a Sunday in late summer when the salmon run was slowing down, we packed up the kayaks, gear, crab traps and headed for the coast. A review of the weather revealed some rain and wind but hey, it's Oregon and you never really know what will happen. Well, the weather folks got this one right and we enjoyed a fantastic ride to the coast and never took the kayaks off the Escape. However, I did find out that I can put two 10-foot fishing kayaks, a 17-foot sea kayak, two crab traps and two crab rings and a lot of gear, all on top of the Escape and still get close to 25 miles per gallon.
