It was just 33 degrees when I loaded up my truck the morning of April 29th, 2018. There was actually ice built up on my Kayak as I dragged it through my yard.
I considered cancelling the trip but we didn't feel like waiting for mother nature to let go of her winter grip. The way things have been going this year it will probably snow in June. My nephew Brett and his girlfriend layered up and joined me for our first float of 2018.
It finally warmed up to about 38 degrees when we hit the Monongahela at 10am. We dropped in at the end of the Old Ferry Road in Crucible PA and pulled out at just 2 miles away at the Lock Wall in Rices Landing PA. Good times.
