Beautiful Day for Kayaking

 

 

-You watch the weather and think "heavy rain" is a "good" weather forecast.

 

 

-You can't drive over a river without stopping to look up stream.

 

 

-Whenever you give directions you include phrases like "cross over the X river" but you can't remember the road names, "there is a pond on your left" or "the road follows the river" etc.

 

 

-When your basement smells like a combination of old polypro and stale river water.

 

 

-You choose a home based on its proximity to a river.

 

 

-Your Sunday drives in the country with your family or significant other often includes detours to drive by a river or to an outfitter's shop.

 

 

-There is no room in your garage for your car because your boat(s) take up too much room.

 

 

-You appear at a chiropractor appointment in your wetsuit because there was simply no time to change.

 

 

-Your boat cost more than your car.

 

 

-You call work to tell them your sick and then go paddling.

 

 

-You find yourself humming Weather Channel tunes.

 

 

-You can ID make and model on a car topped canoe or kayak at a quarter mile.

 

 

 

-The phrases "wet, sticky hole" and "blowing a ferry" in casual conversation don't give you pause.

 

 

-You attempt to roll just about anything that floats at theme parks.

 

 

-You measure major purchases relative to the cost of a new boat — "Hmmm, that new computer will cost me about 2 1/2 kayak units."

 

-You jump in the car after boating and the process of buckling-up seems kind of silly considering what you've just been through.
