The March-April 2012 AAA North Carolina "Go Magazine" cover has a photo of a couple enjoying themselves while kayaking. Even though the models are not wearing PFDs, are carrying hot coffee (in a kettle), are not dressed for immersion, and paddling during months (in NC) with dangerously cold water temperatures... the Durhamblogger can't take it seriously... due to the fanciful nature and treatment of the photo!
All in good fun... as long as nobody tries to copy this behavior?
Please check out Mike's Gear List and Cold Weather Survival for gear and safety tips when paddling.
Stay safe out there on the water!
