I will freely admit that I am not much of a kayaker or bicyclist. I like to have interesting (dare I say -pretty?) scenery as I float or peddle along. I don't like to bike along weedy ditches or kayak amongst reeds. I am not a fan of peddling up hills or paddling against the current. My kayak & bike are simply a quicker mode of transportation then walking to explore nature. But I will do a route once, just to see what is new.
After a while, all the options around home are no longer new. So you go a little further a field. Until those are all used up as well. And that is where we found ourselves. Looking at each other, hoping the other one has a good answer when the topic of summer vacation comes up. And this time when he said I don't care, I took action.
The great thing about good travel design is that you make it do what you want it to do. We wanted to kayak & bike. In my quest to find somewhere new to do both of those activities, I came across the Erie Canal Challenge. A chance web search result turned into a perfect opportunity to incorporate biking, kayaking as well as a National Park site into our vacation plans.
The trip out and back to our main destination is just another opportunity to stop and explore America at other places that indulge our other hobbies and interests. He likes trying local brews, stopping at Triple D locations and caving. I like ice cream, fabric stores & 1000 Places to See Before You Die. We have more then enough things to keep us moving forward on a road trip.
