About Me

Hello Everyone, and thank you for joining me here on my Kayak Adventures website. I started this website to share my journey into the world of kayaking and to help those of you that have always wanted to try it out to have the courage to go for it. Also, those of you that have been kayaking for a while, join me on this adventure to learn more about the wonderful places you can go and the fun accessories that you can put on your kayak to make the journey more fun, and I invite you to share your adventures and tips.

A Little About My Kayak Story

I haven’t always owned a kayak. In fact, I didn’t get my first kayak until I was 50 yrs young. I grew up in the country and spent a lot of time camping as a child and even later with my own children. Even though we spent a lot of summers camping and floating down the river, we always used inner tubes. I have always loved the water and fishing, but never really considered doing it from a kayak.

Then, several years ago, my husband and I moved into our RV full-time and landed in Missouri. Here we lived in a campground right on a lake, next door to Bass Pro Shop. While working in the Bass Pro Shop, I became interested in the kayaks as a means to get out on the lake closer to the bigger fish. Just never could make the plunge to purchase one.

As luck would have it, one glorious day at work, we were in the midst of a contest and the prize was a beautiful red Ascend D10T kayak. When they called my name as the winner, I just about jumped out of my shoes!

That is where this story gets exciting!

I have fallen completely in love with kayaking!

Whether you are in it to fish, to just float down a lazy river and enjoy the scenery, or to take it on to some crazy, rushing river for a thrill of a lifetime, kayaking is a great way to relieve stress, get exercise and see some amazing things. Since owning my kayak I have fished a bit and I have seen some great scenery. I have also purchased a few accessories to make my excursions a bit more fun.

My Purpose and My Hope

My purpose and hope for this website is to share my adventures with those that either can’t get out and explore in a kayak or to encourage those that want to and don’t know where to start. I would love to take you all on an adventure and share some beautiful places, maybe catch a few fish and help you make some educated decisions about equipment and accessories if you are in the market.

I am certainly not a pro, but come with me on a journey of discovery and learning and we will figure it out together!

  1. Annette,

    Nice articles on your website. Makes me want to go out and buy one. Great information and you give detailed reviews on your top products.

    I also love the physical and mental benefits you got out of kayaking. All I can is Kudos to you.

    Regards,
    Courtney-

  2. I like your blog post on storing kayaks. Some of those racks look great. We have two kayaks, mine is a Diablo Amigo and is 12 foot long. my husband’s is only 11 feet. We currently store ours in the basement propped up against the wall, but a rack would be much better. I’m going to share this article with my husband. -Shirley

    1. Shirley,
      Thank you for stopping in and checking out the info. I am so glad you found it useful. I hope you find the rack that will best suit your needs. Come back and share what you found and how it is working for you.
