Here’s to Camping with Kayaks!

Many people see “kayaking” and “camping” as two separate activities and never the ‘twain shall meet.  You’re missing out on twice the fun if you do….extending your paddling day by camping over gives you new insights into the wild places, new opportunities to get to know your fellow paddlers, extends your range, and increases the efficiency of your traveling time and dollars for paddling.
