It was fun to get back on the hunt. The date of the patrol was June 6th but just logging this today. I'm practicing on a stand-up paddleboard as well as a kayak. Still deciding which I like.


Did the shoreline from Grid 2576 south to 2414 before I was interrupted by family stuff! Still have to get out and do the rest to the south.
