Re: Hurricane Irma survivor check-in from Briggsy

I can't help but picture Briggsy out there kayaking at the height of the storm, looking like Slim Pickens riding the bomb at the end of Dr. Strangelove.

Re: Kayaking the North River

The food is good there. You're going to want to do this at or near high tide. You'll be going against the current in each direction, but it should't be terribly strong. Going with the current each direction would be kind of unpleasant, because with the water so low, you're going to be going over som...

Excellent question, Bea. If there is a limit, I'll expand it or eliminate it. As far as the size goes, I think that people should try to resize the photos to something reasonable. Anything much wider than 1000 px across is probably going to be lost on anyone, and will probably force the width of the...

Due to overwhelming demand ("overwhelming" being a relative term), I've updated the forum software. The default style is now mobile-friendly. The look is pretty spartan at this point, but I'll do my best to get some images up at the top.
