Being outdoors is somewhat new to me. I’d been camping with my dad when I was very young, and I’d slept in a tent a few times as an adult, but never really camping. That changed in January of 2012, when I went camping with my partner. It was a blast, and immediately I knew I was hooked.
A month later, we went camping again. I rented a kayak at Ginnie Springs and paddled on the Santa Fe River. That was the first time I’d ever been in a kayak. The feeling I get when I’m on the water is indescribable – I’ve called it “liquid Xanax” on more than one occasion.
In March, after much anticipation, I bought my first kayak. My partner bought hers shortly thereafter.
After each trip, I’m typically left with photos, GPS routes, a wealth of knowledge, and lots of great stories. I felt that I needed a place to journal my kayak adventures – to bring this all together in one place. I started a blog. 🙂
