Very nice, thank you. I’ve been finding that roof rack shopping is more difficult than kayak shopping haha. I’ll look into that set up. Enjoy!

IS that a soft top pulling a uhaul trailer? WHAT?!?! Lol, did you use a hard top jeep to rent it and then towed it with the JL?
I know a bunch of red flags lol but we had to get the JK home. We pretty much said we were towing with a pick up.

Ooookkkkay. You have probably driven the last nail in the coffin of the idea that I need to keep a truck. I've never been kayaking, but it calls to me. Answering the call of the Jeep sure worked out, and I should probably answer that call too.

Haha do it! And you might want to consider taking an LL Bean or REI paddling course (or similar). My first boat is a 10.5 footer which was a bit too short for me and hard to track straight. Had I taken a class, I could have tested different models and not have made that mistake before buying.

I'm sure you'll love that feeling of being out on the water exploring streams or rivers or lakes, it's such a cool experience :)

I took a paddling course back about 1982. :)

One of the great disappointments of being a parent was that summer adventure camps were a lot more lame for my kids' generation. No canoes, no kayaks, no zip lines, no spelunking, no rappelling, no rock climbing. Instead, I think they all sat around camp molding participation trophies out of zero carbon synthetic clay substitutes.

I almost drowned at summer camp, because I didn't know how to swim yet. I bobbed, and saved my own life. We climbed a rock one time, and right as I got to the top, one of the camp guys was like, "Just give the copperhead a wide berth and you'll be fine."

I'm too old and fat to climb rocks, but I bet paddling a kayak hasn't changed since I was a kid.

I chauffeured the Missus to the local Kamp Kovid, for her first of the two-injection regimen.

Occupying a now-closed K-Mart, the operation was admittedly well-organized. The staff are pleasant, and the 30-day follow-up appt. is scheduled during the check-in process.

(Please excuse the recurring use of hyphens in a single sentence. 🤪)

Other than boats and gear being lighter and better designed you're right!

Why towing Jeep ?
Guy in the JK blew out his gears. Guess he got a little carried away driving on the beach
