My Kayak Comparison Chart (River runners/creekers & Playboat categories)

This will be an ongoing chart where I compare boats i've paddled to each other along some common categories. I'll try and maintain this as best as I can! This is a list for river running, up to class IV, and I've used to determine what boat I want to get into when I think I'm going paddling at my maximum skill. I tend to get in smaller more fun boats when I'm more in my comfort zone!

MOFI-4500 -- 4g LTE Router That's Great for RV/Camper -- MOFI4500-4GXeLTE-SIM4

I am blessed with a career where I have been able to work remote for a long time now. It's an amazing luxury that I worked very hard to earn in my life, and it has afforded me amazing work/life balance. This last year or so though I've started to take working remote to remote locations, which is another amazing work/life balance achievement. With that flexibility though comes responsibility, and part of that flexibility is infalliable internet connectivity. I need to not just perform at a normal level, I need to perform at the highest levels so as there can be no doubts.

Getting the Jackson Zen 3.0 out in some class 4, Nirvana picture comparison

As luck would have it, the same river I'd gotten to run the boat on first came in again with even more water. this opened up the opportunity for me to go higher on the river and run through a pretty fun class 4 rapid, called "Big Eddy". This would be a good chance to test this boat in some interesting water, while also running the same section as the week before with significantly more water in it.

First Impression and review of the Jackson Kayak Zen 3.0

I picked up my brand spanking new Yellow Jackson Kayak Zen 3.0 from Next Adventure, and right away the skepticism began. The shop employees and even myself had our doubts. Look at that big rocker with a big fat flat planing surface, won't that just push water? Why does it look like a diesel in the rear? Dear god this is a huge boat. Myself and the others all had our doubts, but shop talk rarely translates to how a boat actually handles on the water, so onward I went.

The new Zen 3.0 comes at an interesting time in kayak development.

Haibike sdurro full 7 LT -Initial Ride Review with Dropper Testing

After getting the bike together and then waiting nearly a week for the dropper post we ordered to arrive, we finally got the bike together and went for a ride. We're blessed to live just several short blocks from a fun network of trails, although we sometimes drive to the entry solely so we can bring our dogs along without having to slowly walk them through the neighborhood.

Haibike sdurro full 7 LT - Unboxing and initial experience... and it's overall good!

We ordered our Haibike online, and it was on it's way to us within a day. We're in Oregon, and it shipped from California, so the box was delivered to a nearby FedEx location in 4 days. It normally ships to your house, but our situation dictated needing to pickup at a FedEx store in Oregon.

2019 Haibike SD Full Seven LT 3.0 eMTB eBike.

Ebikes are really rad. Haters are going to hate, but after having demod a few, I'm personally pretty sold on them as valuable for whomever choses one for themselves. I can cover more laps, progress fast due to those extra full strength laps, and just get more saddle time while still burning through tons of calories. I get to the top of runs having expended far less of my energy, and I'm able to ride at my full potential on the way done, which is arguably safer.
