    Beam, in the context you used it means width. Beam width is like saying ATM Machine or PIN number.

    Wow...that's a skinny one. I hope to have enough skill some day to feel comfortable in one that skinny (assuming my fat but would feel comfortable in one that skinny).

    How do I talk my daughter out of wanting to go horseback riding and go kayaking this coming weekend instead? LOL

    Last Saturday it was all day rain. Wife has another weekend off, wow, 2 in a row. I need to take advantage of it as she might not see another one for 6 months. I've been wanting to take my oldest kayaking ever since last year we did the try-out at the local lake's annual regatta. Saturday evening after the rain let up, we went to visit at my sister-in-laws and they saddled up a horse and let her ride around in a little fenced in area. Now she is back on the horse kick.

    Bought myself a kayak finally. An Elie Sound 100X. Should be a good boat to start with.

    Should be a great boat for skill learning. Work on those different strokes.

    Well the world don't move, to the beat of just one drum...

    I had it out once already. Was attacked by a beaver. I can make it go straight, though, so there's a start. Right now, work is trying to kill me so it'll have to wait until the weekend to go again.

    I've also discovered that with a little speed up, if I dig one end of my paddle in, I can spin it sideways and make a big splash.

    Looks good. Have fun with it. Not sure if I'll get out or not this year to try out kayaking. Stinking rain every time my wife is off work.

    I've been trying to spend more time in my boat this year - the rain around here has kept the mtb trails too soft to ride most of the summer, so kayaking is a good alternative weekend adventure.

    The water level at Slippery Rock Creek (PA) was low enough that it wasn't pushy at all, but high enough that it still felt like whitewater. I took the GoPro along for the first time on a Slip trip, and took some video.

    We are under a 5 day production shutdown at work which I was still able to go in the last 2 days since, well, I don't work in production. I took today off. Figured wife and I could do something together since we will be kidless (we never have time without the kids.)

    She had different plans. "Why don't I go shopping and you go kayaking!" Sounds great to me!

    Thus, I headed out to Moraine State Park to rent a kayak for an hour or two.

    Wow, I certainly hope purchased kayaks go better than those rentals. I spent most of the time trying to stop from spinning around, LOL. I figured I'd start the Map My Ride app for kicks and have it record. The map even shows the constant back and forth correction.



    I'll say it was somewhat fun and somewhat relaxing. The rentals are on the south shore which is the largest and most open part of the lake. The good kayaking would be on the north west part where there are a lot of little fingers and coves to paddle up. It would have taken forever to get to those areas. I paddled around an hour along the shore before turning around (or as best I could, I kept spinning and facing out towards the main body of the lake.) US 422 you can see in one of the pics below crosses the lake in this area, so it really wasn't very peaceful.

    It was very difficult to actually move forward in the rental, so I doubt I would ever do this again, the renting part. I have been wanting to try it out all summer and finally got the chance to do it. Now I hope to be able to pick one up next spring, something that will track straight instead of constant turning like these ones did. About halfway back to the dock, I was thinking I should have worn my bike shorts. It was worse than being on a bike saddle for 2 hours. It was fun, but so frustrating and so much work to get it going somewhere. A shame really that you can't just spend $20 now and then and go for a paddle because the kayaks suck.

    Just a couple pictures because they all looked the same. Would have been much nicer to be on the northern shore.







    One last picture which no one here would relate too. Had to take this one for Facebook because a coworker sunk his fishing boat here 17-18 years ago and he still gets razzed about it. I had to post on Facebook, "I see your boat, Kirk!"
