Was in the process of breaking camp when the park ranger showed up questioning what I was doing. I had reservations but didn’t check in as the office was closed. So I had to go check in and out.
My friend John showed up to pick up most of the gear so I wouldn’t have to portage a heavy kayak.
Well that started my journey of encounter with rangers and corp of engineer security.
Apparently the corp sees the portaging of a sea kayak down the bike path as a very dangerous hazard. Really?? They won’t let you through the canal which is dangerous. Going around the Cape is dangerous in 2 places. The state would frown on me portaging the breakdown lanes on Route 3 & 6. So the safe alternative is the bike path for those with common sense.
I did allot of raising awareness while waiting to be picked up.
