Hi Jon. Sorry for the late notice and the late reply to your post. It was a fun trip. Agreed that more advance notice would be better. Will try to be better next year. Part of it is waiting for low wind to make the night paddle safer and more pleasant. We scouted a better camping spot for the next time. - Brian
