Story about Maddog CBG's by Rod Wellington

A good freind of mine named Rod Wellington from Ontario, Canada wrote a nice story I thought I would share. Here is the link, enjoy.

Rod is an adventurer and has just completed a 3,800 mile Kayak journey down the entire Missouri/Mississippi river from source to sea. Amazing person!

Thanks John!

Yep, Paddle Geetars are the next installment ;-)  The "Up a Creek" series. Don't know what they'll sound like, but we'll soon find out.

Thanks S.D.!

I believe you are a mind reader, I am working on 2 paddle gits as we speak :-) Should finish the 1st one up tonight and will post photos at that time. Great minds think alike huh? Or somethin' like that anyways lol.

That's a great piece, Maddog. Very well-written. Plus it sounds like you got this guy hooked on cbgs. ...Hmm,  wonder if you could make a couple of three-bangers out of a kayak paddle? :-)
