Since it'll feel more like spring on Tuesday, it's time to "wash" my boat, so I plan to do some local paddling at Stone Mountain Park. It's a nice place to prepare for the longer distance trips in more exotic places. 

We will meet at the only boat ramp in Stn Mtn park (see GPS coordinates). When you get there, just unload the boat and get in the water, so we don't block the boat ramp. We can do introductions once we all gather in the water.

It will be a nice leisurely paddle across Stn Mtn lake. Nothing aggressive. You can always paddle ahead and come back to the group to test your arm strength if you want. Kind of hard to get lost here anyway. We will wander around a bit, going around islands, under covered bridges, beside some shoals and circle back. I don't usually go more than around 6-7 miles. 

There's some nice views for a local lake, and relatively quiet, with some typical wildlife here and there. I like the way the air feels as it skims over the water.

The photo below is the boat I will bring, so you can recognize me by that if there's other groups there. Also, that's Stn Mtn in the background in case you're not familiar with the area.

Boat, paddle, life jacket. Water.
