Solo Paddling

After spending the summer introducing peoplel to the wonderful art of sea kayaking, I find myself relishing time alone in my boat. I don't know what it is, but I just love paddling alone. So far I've only done day-long trips solo, but I'm planning on some longer ones for the spring.

Does anyone else out there suffer from the same affliction I do? I would love to hear other's philosophies, and reasons for why they go it alone. Oh, and you staunch, always-paddle-in-groups, realist-safety advocates who would love to smack some sense into me, I'd like to hear from you too. Give me some reasons not to go explore Superior on my own this summer.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.
