Hi all.

happy New year to every1. I got back this evening (1st Jan). The trip was great - rapids were fun and easy, but the river was low, so we paddled much harder than normally necesaary. to top it off, the temperature reached a high of 53 degrees C!!!! <img src="images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

Still, we had great fun, and had some of the Stormers (provincial rugby team) were part of our group. Great fun!!!!

Anyway...

Knives: I sharpened and treared them with lubricating oil before I left. I kept a SAK and Fox 40 on a lanyard around my neck. I kept my wave in a ziplock in my watertight barrel. Not a sign of corrosion on either tool, although the metal ring on the lanyard shows a bit of rust (no oil)

Kayak: thanks for the post, but I only saw it today.
