texas paddling trails
When I re-joined the ACK team in mid 2015, one of my goals was to try and get outside more. With unlimited access to the best in paddling and camping gear, it only made sense.
The San Antonio River Authority in conjunction with Texas Parks and Wildlife opened Bexar County’s first paddling trail earlier this month. The Saspamco paddling trail is located south of San Antonio with it’s put in located near Elmendorf, TX and its take out at the Helton San Antonio River Nature Park.
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.
