I figured I would share my recent educational experience so you can learn from others' mistakes. Put the paddles in your car first! Whether you're packing up to go on a kayaking trip or loading back up to come home (ESPECIALLY if you're loading up to come home!). I've been kayaking for years but I recently made a rookie...well, not even that...just a, as we say in the technology world, ID-10-T error (ID10T=IDIOT). I set the paddles on a nearby tree that was blown over to get them out of the way of other folks who were using the landing. I didn't realize they were gone until the next day. Of course I rushed back to the landing but they were gone (either the tide got them or a local kayaker has an early Christmas present). If anyone sees two white fiberglass paddles floating down the river they're mine! I put a marker (blue push pin) on my Navionics app so you can tell where they were last seen (near River Road Landing in Wilmington, NC).

Live and learn as they say. We normally take a spare paddle with us as insurance that you will not break or loose one on the river. I normally have problems such as the wife hiding the river camera from herself, with no idea where it is.
Seems like last year we left the sun glasses in the recovery vehicle one trip.
