    My knees ached for days after the trip and at first I swore my pumpkin-paddling days were over. My daughter Morgan has different ideas, though. She wants me to grow a pumpkin big enough for the two of us to paddle down the river together, so that’s what I’m working on now. I reckon it’ll need to weigh about a ton. Can I do it? I think so. Like I said, I’m an optimist.

    Experience: I paddled a giant pumpkin down a river for 11 hours
