We got a new toy! I have always wanted a kayak (most specifically because I want to be able to do paddle-only geocaches.) so when I discovered this kayak that was small enough to fit in my little Honda Fit and very affordable on a sale....I couldn't resist! She is a Pelican Vortex DLX80 and she is all mine!
I plan to primarily take Ein with me on my paddle adventures - it will be a nice way for us to get out together in nature. Just like we always did. But with a lot less physical demand than my preference for five plus mile hikes puts on his hips.
I need to get a life vest (Ein already has one.), a paddle and a permit for the kayak, but as soon as that is all squared away we will be setting "sail" on our first paddling adventure. I love summer!
