2021 – Heading outdoors. Have you heard of the Origami Paddler?

I came across this new paddle board / kayak invention by Tim Neimeir. He’s been in the kayak industry for years. Visit his site, Origami Paddler, to learn more about him. He’s had great success on Kickstarter.

I’d like to learn paddle boarding and kayaking this year. I’ve kayaked, but haven’t tried paddle boarding. I’m exploring what boards are out there to purchase that are easy to put in my car and carry.

I just bought two wonderful Paddling magazines. Life is interesting. When we put something that we want out to the Universe, suddenly we attract information on it.

Right now, it’s too COLD for boating in Chicago, but I’ve got to formulate a plan for Spring.

How about YOU? What is your big outdoor goal for this year?

With COVID, I was reading that bikes and kayaks were sold out. Even indoor bikes and treadmills have been back ordered. So, the sporting / exercising industry is changing, getting a boost and coming up with NEW ideas for how we can eat healthy and exercise in or outdoors.

2021 – On to the big adventure.

  1. Paddleboarding has always intrigued me. It looks easier than it really is if you watch someone who’s experienced. You must have good balance. It’s probably a great workout for your core once you can paddle strong without worrying about falling over. I’ve seen paddleboarders in the ocean beyond the waves and they look great, but I’m sure the best place to get started is somewhere calmer, like a lake or big swimming pool.

    1. Laughing… when you said swimming pool, I had a vision of those kid pools we put in the backyard and fill with water… you know, so we can practice closer to the ground. I think as we age, it sure would be good to practice on balance. Not sure I can do it, but want to give it a try. I could never do wind surfing because I wasn’t strong enough to pull up the wet sail from the water.

      1. Oh, I totally agree about windsurfing. Looks really adventurous but I missed the window where I could actually hold the sail. Should’ve done that like thirty years ago ha.

  2. “Life is interesting. When we put something that we want out to the Universe, suddenly we attract information on it.” Loved your statement, although I don’t think I’ll try kayaking.

    What a great concept to live by. Ask, and it is Given. I’ve proved this for over sixty years!

    1. It so true. It’s not enough to want something, we really have to put ALL our thinking into wanting it. Like YOU, I think you had a story about a door or a door knob and it came to you in the strangest way. Our thoughts have power. I guess I’d find a boyfriend if I put more thought into that. I always focus on other things more passionately. 🙂
