While I was in Vancouver for Canada Day long weekend, my girlfriend Mishelle picked us up two folding kayaks. She found them on Kijiji and convinced me we HAD to have them. I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into and I wasn't sure if I was about to waste $300, but I handed Mishelle a wad of cash and hoped for the best. And, when I returned to Jasper a few days later, well, let me tell you, I was one happy little water-loving-paddler. This thing is SO RAD. I cannot say enough amazing things about my precious little boat. It folds in half, which means it fits beautifully in the back of our little Rav4 and I can maneuver it around all by myself—yay for a wheel on the front! I don't have to get a helper to put it on the roof rack. I don't have to have a helper to get it in or out of the vehicle. I can handle it all by my lonesome, which means I can pack up and go WHENEVER I WANT. Guys, whenever I want. Brilliant. Just plain old brilliant. And, I mean, just look at the gorgeous places that it's taking me! Life sure is mighty fine when you're out in the middle of a gorgeous lake.
Curious how it works? Well, here's a cute little video with some sweet reggae beats in the background. It will give you a good idea of what I'm working with.
