My new KAYAK!

| July 10, 2011

Yay!!  I got my new kayak and I am so excited.  I’ve had a kayak for a couple of years now (check out my “Hobbies” page).  Anyway, the old one is considered a touring boat.  That means it’s long and narrow and used for longer trips- usually cuts through the water a little easier.  On the other hand, it’s hard to carry and not as stable as some of the wider boats.  After a suggestion from my Dad (he made it over and over), I decided to sell the old one and buy a new one.

My new kayak which is a perception prodigy 10.0

This is the NEW one.

I researched for a crazy amount of time.  I’m so particular when I buy something that is expensive.  I also want to find the one I’ll be happiest with once I’ve made the purchase.  First, I checked out the Old Town Vapor.  Rented it, tested it out…thought I was convinenced to go with that model.  Then, after a trip to REI, I was introduced to the Perception Prodigy.  Love at first sight.  No hesitation.  I ordered it online and waited with anticipation.  It finally came in and I took it out for it’s maiden voyage on 7/7/11.  It was everything I had hoped it would be.  You can expect me to post lots of pictures from future trips.  I’m so happy!

Geocache Containers

Containers I painted for geocaching

Ok, so most of my friends and family know that I love to geocache. Wait…I take that back. Most of them know I enjoy it but only a few actually understand the hobby. Anyway, I’m going on vacation next week and have already planned several “cache runs”. I’m hoping to visit Cane Creek Park to hide a few caches myself. Of course you know I’ll have to kayak there too. So…why not combine the two? PERFECT!! I’ve added a picture of the new cache containers that I painted today.  Wow, I can’t wait for Friday to get here!
