I went to REI for the free classes tonight. The Kayak Rolling was done in a classroom setting, but I will try real rolling (in the water) at the Austin Paddling Club class in October. I think I should be able to handle being upside down in water as long as it doesn't get in my ears.

Light backpacking: as the instructor said... the weight of a backpacking equipment is inversely proportional to its weight on your wallet. Hrmpf. I really don't feel like buying another backpacking tent. The one I have is 6 lbs.. okay for 2 people (could be lighter) but heavy for one person. But I do have a light sleeping bag now (rei clearence). Hrmpf. I guess it's all tradeoffs. What's a couple extra pounds?

No, just a friend teaching me in the lake. I never really got the hang of it very well. Maybe a class would have been better...
