... at our fist stop and loaded up on gear full thick wetsuit, jacket, gloves and 2 pairs of socks... We were ready to get real cold. Once we had all our gear sorted we hopped back in the van and headed a bit down the road to river. It was pretty sweet being such a small group it was only Jenny, Maarten and I so it really hurried things along.
