Riverine Ranger

Postby Eledhwen » Wed Jan 23, 2019 9:22 pm

So I've finally ordered in a canoe. A Carbon Fusion Prospector 16 by Swift. They have a kind of woven look to them, almost herringbone looking. This is my story; it's made by the Elves. Black, with an ivory bottom, it weighs only 34 pounds, something I need given the condition of my left shoulder and leg. I shall be picking it up in March or April. Just in time for the season in these parts. Much of my Ranger-Harper activities will then center around rivers and lakes. I know, I know, canoe is modern, etc. Like I said, for my part, it is Elven made and that does it for that. The rest of my kit and clothing will be 'proper' enough. Waterproof cases for instruments, all the necessary stuff. Also, on occasion, a Colonial look.

In any case, I am extremely excited and ready to rock the Adirondack Park, the lakes and rivers hereabouts, and eventually, maybe someday, assuming it is still there then, the Boundary Waters.

A Riverine Ranger, a riverine Bard. So it goes.

Oh yes, I now have an eight course travel lute as well as the harps, lyres, flutes, and drums. ;)

Stories to come as the year moves on.

Absolutely delighted!

I'll look forward to reading about/seeing photo's of your adventures, I don't see a problem with it being modern, It'll look the part just fine :D

Congrats on the acquisition! I know you'll love it!

Some of you may remember, years ago, when I still lived in Northern California, all of my paddling adventures on the lake that I shared on the forums. I had to sell my boat when I moved out here seven some-odd years ago, but just a few months ago I acquired a new (lighter) one myself. Modern materials, sure...but all the adventure regardless!

Looking forward to hearing of your outings.
