Lake Jocasee September 2013

Gusto and Helpdesk took our new rides to good o'le Lake Jocassee.  The weather was great, however a little warm at night.  We paddled up to the foothills trail and camped on Sunday then paddled back to Devils Fork on Monday for a second night.   We covered some serious miles and did so at a fairly fast pace with the new kayaks.  Monday was the best as we only saw a few boats on the lake and the winds were calm and the water was still.  We just sliced right through it with little effort.
Here is a high level view of our GPS track
