And I step into a kayak…

I’ve been kayaking a lot.

I mean… you don’t even understand how much time I’ve spent in a small plastic boat, on the charles river, over the last few weekends.

It’s a bit ridiculous… but also quite enjoyable.  It’s like biking… a bit.  Instead of legs, there’s arms.

Instead of breakneck speed, there’s a slow cruise.  Instead of the breeze of motion, there’s the wind off the water.

And my favorite – Where a cyclist has to keep intense situational awareness going at all times, a kayaker can simply take a break and ignore everything.

The origin of this is that, a month or three ago, I bought myself a membership to the kayak rental group that lives along the charles river – they’ve got a few locations, so I have enough options on where to go paddling that I haven’t really gotten bored yet.  And they have Sea Kayaks too, which definitely make everything a bit easier.  They’re more prone to rocking and tipping, but the rudder is amazing and 100% worth the extra effort to stay afloat.

What more is there to say?

I am an adventurer. I've been many things in my life; a machinist, a mechanical designer, a training coordinator, a facilities consultant, and a seasonal construction worker. But through it all, I've kept my love of adventure and exploration strong, through rock climbing, backpacking, cycling, exploring, and trying new things. The rush of adventure is intoxicating, and the thrill of discovery and exploring is unbeatable.
