Norska Aclima som gör ullplagg kommer med två nya materialserier. Fleecewool är som namnet antyder en ullvariant på det populära materialet fleece. Här finns till att börja med två plagg; joggingbyxor och huvtröja. Ser ut som perfekta plagg i stugsoffan eller husbilssoffan men ullmaterialet gör de nog lämpade även under andra plagg vid aktiviteter. Flexwool ... Läs mer...
Summer sojourn on the Moray Firth - among the red towers Mountain and Sea Scotland Friday, 11 October, at 18:03
Summer sojourn on the Moray Firth - underneath the arches Mountain and Sea Scotland Thursday, 10 October, at 18:00
The third day of our trip on the Moray Firth dawned bright and
sunny again. Raymond had hillwalking plans for this day and so it
would be Allan, Lorna and I paddling. We'd discussed various route
options for the day over dinner the previous evening - perhaps
setting out again from Whitehills to make a continuous journey, or
heading farther east to Aberdeenshire's North Sea coast. It
didn't take much debate before we decided on a trip which would
take in some of the best rock architecture on this coast.
Recently a friend sent me a link to the new Oru Kayak - the
Inlet. Which is their newest and smallest folding kayak. He asked
what It thought. Here is the video that accompanies the boat on
First I would argue that their points "where do you find the time, where do you find the space?" Are fallacies driven by capitalism run a muck. Yes, it may be hard for some people to find the time to paddle or follow other outdoor pursuits, but that isn't a problem that should be fixed by buying something. It is a problem that is fixed by getting your priorities straight, but that isn't what my friend was asking.
He asked, what I thought of this kayak, and even that has some problems with it. Was he asking what did I think of folding kayaks? What did I think of this particular type of folding kayak or what did I think of this specific Oru folding kayak. Again, it comes down to priorities.
If your priority is a boat that packs small and stores easily I think this is a great boat. It weighs a mere 20 pounds and according to Oru assemblies in 3 to 5 minutes. I would add, that is 3 to 5 minutes when you know how to do it. The first time I set one up it was close to 30. But at the end of that 3 to 5 minutes you are still paddling a ten...
Happened to swing by Algonquin Outfitters at Oxtongue Lake a
while back and immediately noticed the well preserved bark canoe
suspended over the cash register.
Recently I taught my last paddle classes for the season, and
maybe for quite a while. Head over to YouTube to find out why.
Vi tog en liten utflykt med stugbilen Winzent även i oktober. Början var tillochmed i september 🙂 Startade med att besöka nygamla bekanta nere i krokarna av Lövestad/Sjöbo. Riktigt trevligt! Blev en rejäl mtb-runda längs med Verkeån, delvis på Skåneleden. Superfin kombo av stig, skogsväg, grusväg i fina omgivningar. Var nere kring Vantalängan och vände. ... Läs mer...
Over the last couple of years, I’ve been experimenting with different pillow options that range from Hyperlite Mountain Gear Stuff Sack Pillow to stuffing clothing into the sleeves of my coats. Nothing has been comfortable. So, when searching for inflatable pillows, I came across an inexpensive option that was well reviewed on Amazon. It’s the Trekology Ultralight Camping Pillow. This is my brief Trekology Ultralight Camping Pillow Review.
The Trekology Ultralight Camping Pillow is technically called the Aluft 2.0. It’s $16 on Amazon. It is an inflatable pillow. It takes three to five breaths to completely inflate. When inflated, it’s about 17 inches by 11 inches and about 4 inches high. The pillow packs small enough to fit in your hand. The claimed weight is 2.8 ounces. It’s 3.8 ounces on my scale with the stuff sack, pillow and the worthless strap that is suppose to keep the pillow on your mattress pad. The fabric on the top of the pillow feels softish, and the bottom textured fabric helps keep it from slipping off your sleeping pad. Trekology uses a valve that only allows air to escape after you click a button. Otherwise, you can blow air in without it escaping.
Summer sojourn on the Moray Firth - Sandend to Whitehills Mountain and Sea Scotland Tuesday, 08 October, at 22:29
Our camp site for the night had been the very pleasant Sandend
Caravan Park (which also has tent pitches). Wild camping
isn't so easy to find on this part of the coast, so this was a
perfect base - especially as we were able to carry our boats
straight onto the glorious Sandend beach to launch.

Hej filmade i Mörtviken dit Örnsbergs kanotsällskap eventuellt kanske ska flytta och bygga nya lokaler. Inget är dock klart runt detta projekt så om det blir något av detta återstår att se!
Se vilka alternativ som finns!
Ny månad som drog vidare. Fortsatte vår Winzentutflykt och det var såklart supergött med lite cykling och bad. Vi lyckades få in en paddling till Hallands väderö det var alldeles för länge sedan. Grym söndagseftermiddag på ön. En runda på Rönneå blev det med. Ännu en snålpaddlad månad 🙂 Mycket trevligt med Vanlifeträff vid Hjörneredssjön ... Läs mer...
A few years ago, I decided it might be a good idea to take an opportunity every now and then for an informal reception, where I could present the story of what the Ikkatsu Project is doing on an ongoing basis. A party, if you will, that could also serve to catch folks up on current activities, to give a report on the year that just passed and to take a quick look at what might be coming up. It’s time to do that again.
On December 4th, the Ikk...

What a great weekend! Three days on the water with a great group of badass women. I love this event for many reasons. One, it takes place on one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve seen, Hobuck Beach on the Makah Reservation at the tip of the northwest corner of Washington State. Two, it attracts […]

Summer sojourn on the Moray Firth - Findochty to Sandend Mountain and Sea Scotland Wednesday, 02 October, at 22:25
In the last week of August a spell of warm and potentially
settled weather was forecast. High pressure dominated the weather
across the British Isles but there was some doubt as to where the
centre would be - and that could mean windy conditions would
encroach from the west. Allan, Lorna and I were keen for a
multi-day sea kayak trip somewhere and discussed several different
locations. In the end we decided that hte best chance of good
weather over a period of three or four days was actually quite
close to home on the Moray Firth. Wild camping is possible on this
coast but it would mean a long linear trip; we opted to use a fixed
base at a camp site in a central position.
Our friend Douglas was due to join us but couldn't make it due to an unavoidable engagement but we were delighted that Raymond could join us for two of the three days paddling.
Il secondo symposium femminile di kayak "Il sorriso del mare"... Tatiyak Wednesday, 02 October, at 20:09
Hooray, Hooray, It's River Day! Elisha Cooper's lovely new picture book is in bookstores today, and he'll be making a number of appearances in the Northeast, with several in NYC, over the next few weeks.
I've been saving this video for today - he shares a number of scenes from the book (you'll see why I'm so ridiculously over the moon about this one) and in a very sweet moment, he also talks a bit about the models for his main character. When I first got my hands on the book, one of my first reactions (naturally) was that it was really interesting and nice that the book was about a woman doing a solo paddle, when it would've been just as easy to have it be a guy, but being someone who tends to accept things at face value, I didn't really think to wonder why, but it's neat.
Elisha's events are listed here
And it sounds like his pre-release Sunday special event in Rhinebeck, where book sales for the day appropriately benefited Riverkeeper, was a success...
The route from home which I use most to access the sea kayaking
and hillwalking on Scotland's west coast goes up towards the source
of the River Don, crosses the shoulder of the Cairngorm massif to
the broad valley of the Spey at Grantown, then runs south to
Newtonmore before cutting through to Spean Bridge on the A86 road. This route gives fantastic and varied
scenery - the great mountains of the Cairngorms, Creag Meagaidh,
the Grey Corries and Ben Nevis, two of Scotland's finest rivers,
long fresh water lochs and finally to the sea lochs of the west
coast. Amongst all the grandeur of the big mountains, there's one
small but very distinctive hill above the A86 which has long been
on my list to climb.
A short way south west of Newtonmore there is a small parking area opposite the picturesque Lochain Uvie, which is the only parking opportunity for quite a long stretch of road. There's a gate into the wood at the parking area itself used by climbers accessing the crags above - a better point to start out for the summit can be found by walking 400m south west along the road to a gate opposite the gatehouse for Creagdhubh Lodge.
Another vintage Maine paddle recently found in a former lodge.
Detail's provided by the
eBay ad cite dimensions of 77-1/2" long with a 6-3/4" wide
blade. Covered in faded green paint, the paddle has a crack at the
neck which was strengthened by wrapping some old, cloth backed
tape. The underlying grain pattern looks like it could have been
carved from a softwood to reduce the weight of this hefty, long
paddle. Thankfully, the seller has provided plenty of photos to
show the paddle front as well as the grip sides.
Recuerdo de la ya pasada XVI Concentración KDM La Caleta, en Cádiz josebelloseakayaking Sunday, 29 September, at 18:17
Ieri abbiamo iniziato un nuovo corso di lungo periodo per
imparare a diventare "sea kayak leader".
Non il classico corso intensivo concentrato in un solo fine settimana, ma un più articolato viaggio guidato alla scoperta di tutti i segreti per una sicura, efficace e divertente conduzione del gruppo.
Un corso che gli inglese chiamano "long-term", cioè un bespoke prolungato finalizzato al raggiungimento di uno specifico risultato, che in questo caso richiede variegate competenze...
Sarà stimolante sia per l'allievo, molto determinato a migliorare, che per l'insegnante, sempre pronta ad affrontare nuovi percorsi didattici per sostenere la formazione professionale: stay tuned!
