I like to get out on a solo trip (3-4 days) at least once a year. I day solo boat all the time (3-4 hours) for a workout. But, it is a good escape to go on a trip by yourself once and a while. I am a salesguy that deals with a lot of people, so it is good to escape on a solo trip to do some reflection and long distance paddling with no distractions. Here, in washington State, we have the San Juan Islands and it is a virtual Sea Kaykers paradise, especially in the early spring before all the tourist get up there and spoil the solitude with the ever noisy motor boats.
