Each list is adjusted for where we are going , what we’ll be doing, and how long we’ll be there. Here are a few things I take into account when planning what to pack

5 Kayak Camping Tips

Let’s face it. What’s better than kayaking? If you live by the water or have easy access to the river you may head out on a weekly basis. Just like every sport, kayaking has some drawbacks if you are just getting started. A few of these include transporting the boats, knowing the class of the river and which sections to look out for, and having a put-in and drop-off point with the adequate transportation to bring you back home. Spending a few days on the river can make this effort worth it and you can enjoy the extra miles in the kayak. Fall is a great time to get out on the river and enjoy some camping along the way. We put together some tips for your next kayaking camp trip. Scroll through some of these suggestions and enjoy even more time on the water!

Fishing From a K-PAK in Alaska

Fishing From a K-PAK in Alaska

Some of the most memorable fishing from a K-PAK includes catching trout, silver salmon, and halibut in Alaska. I really enjoy fishing from my K-PAK because I can take it anywhere. It is a great boat for many things, (duck hunting, wildlife photography, exploring, and even a core body workout) but fishing probably tops my list of favorite things to do with this boat. It’s also something I can do 12 months of the year, on still or moving water. Using it to fish and explore hard to reach places is what this boat is all about.
