I’ve personally enjoyed the art of relaxing for pretty much all my life and discovered that one of best ways to fully appreciate this great pastime is with the help of a hammock. There is nothing like relaxing to the sounds of nature while enjoying the cool breeze in the great outdoors.
I was trying to figure how I was going to get all of my gear into one of my sit on top kayaks. Most of the paddlers on this trip were taking canoes but I still preferred to use a kayak. Then it occurred to me that the best option would be a hybrid such as a Native Watercraft Ultimate 14 or a Wilderness Systems Commander 140. Because of their wide-open cockpit design, either would easily accommodate all of my gear while still providing an experience closer to my personal preferences.
