Here at ACK San Marcos, TX we had Boy Scout Troop 1836 hold their weekly meeting right here in our store. The purpose of the meeting was to educate the scouts on the different boats, paddles and products needed for a successful kayak trip.
This is Doug from the San Marcos store and I wanted to get in on the blog action. Last Friday night December 4th 2009 I attended a Great Christmas party held by The Alamo City Rivermen a canoe and kayak club in San Antonio.
I’m always ready to try a new type of kayaking experience so when our local paddler meetup group posted up a trip for shooting a few miles of rapids on a local river I signed right up. Our trip was planned for 8 miles on the Guadalupe River above the Guadalupe River State Park north of San Antonio, TX.
Here at ACK we are quite proud of our service, our speed, our selection, but one thing that truly separates us from others is how we achieve all this while using a recycling program that is a win for everyone, it helps us keep our costs down all while keeping tons and tons of waste out of landfills. We never realized how much we were saving or what the impact to society was until we came across the City of Austin’s WasteSMART, once we began the certification process we soon realized what we were doing for ourselves and for society.
There are hundreds of choices when it comes to keeping your gear dry and protected from sudden, unexpected impacts. With all of these choices, how do you decide?
I headed out to the check-in for the American Swimming Association’s 3rd Annual Dam 5K race that started at 7:45am on Saturday.
Last week a couple of friends, Steve O and Liam, and I took a long weekend up to southern Oklahoma for a few days of camping and rock climbing. Southern Oklahoma boasts some of the best granite slab climbing in the country and it’s practically right around the corner, just a short 6 hour drive from Austin.
