Tualatin River Excursion: Folding Kayaks FTW!

I did go on an 8.5 mile training run on Saturday, but thats not the story today. On Sunday, I got to go in a Kayak trip.

The cool part? We fit two kayaks in the back of our tiny ’99 Corolla.

One Kayak at my feet, one Kayak on my shoulder.

Everything you need for your trip is in this box and every part of this box is the Kayak.

Yes, origami kayaks are awesome and Oru Kayak is simply amazing. They fold up and are around 25 lbs. Easy to carry, and easier/quicker to put together than messing with a roof rack.

Even the paddles fit inside the folded up kayak. Lightweight luggage becomes awesome kayak trip. In fact, while others in our group stood in the rentals line, we put our boats together.

We had fun paddling them around down the Tualatin River. They maneuver well, and are super lightweight. The weight means they turn easily, and you can rock them easy (if you desire)

Also… there was a place right near my feet that I could slide two packages of oreos in and easily access them. Just raft everyone together and pass the oreos around!

What a great time!

Putting it together wasn't too hard, and definitely easier than fighting with a roof rack.

Yeah, it was really pretty awesome. If you are curious about how it works, there is an official assembly video.
