Kelly Blades and I are super excited to let you know that the latest episode of the Kayak Mainline podcast is live and waiting for your beautiful ears to listen along.

For those who follow along on the Mainline Facebook page will remember about 2 weeks ago we recorded as well. Sadly when I went to go edit I discovered that a technical gremlin for into the works causing the recording to come out sounding terrible. The sound quality was amazingly bad. So we scrapped the whole thing. Luckily the latest episode turned out pretty good.

This was a podcast of discovery including:

  • a new piece of technology gear for communicating in the outdoors,
  • why whales blow bubbles (it’s not why you think),
  • a fantastic new Mosquito Repellent that smells as good as it looks.

Finally, we get excited to discover that swearing in front of children no longer a crime in Michigan. That’s FREEDOM baby!

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did putting it together.

With a new school year underway Kelly and I thought it was about time that we get off our butts and record a new episode of our sea kayaking podcast, Kayak Mainline.

In episode 11 of Kayak Mainline we learn about:

  • Military Dolphins with guns attached to their heads,
  • Freya Hoffmeister's Sunday Afternoon Expedition is now 2/3 the way around South America,
  • Halifax paddlers take on a serious crossing to raise cash for kids camp,
  • Scary news: Mosquitoes could soon be immune to Deet.

We also explore (hypothetically) what it would be like to watch a stripper take on Gordon Lightfoot's, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

As a break for hearing us blab on and on, we get on the phone and talk to Marty Perry and Kate Hives of the Hurricane Riders and catch up on they are up to these days.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did putting it together.

Conor Mihell from Canoe & Kayak Magazine posted a great little interview with Kelly and me about our podcast, Kayak Mainline. If you haven’t seen it already check I out.

I would like to thank Conor for working his magic and making us sound kinda like adults. It must have taken hours working to numerous editors to get the job done.

If you haven’t heard the latest episode of Kayak Mainline you still have time to download it.

Kelly Blades and I are very excited to make episode 8 of Kayak Mainline available to you.

This week on Kayak Mainline we learn about:

  • a marriage proposal in a canoe that ends with a call to 911,
  • Michael Jackson karaoke in kayaks,
  • the epic North American Odyssey,
  • enough paddling stats to come out your yin yang.

We also get Bonnie Perry on the phone to talk about her BCU 5* certification. Did you know she is one of only four woman in North America who have it? Amazing.

For those of you keeping track, you will notice there was no announcement of episode 7 here. The story I’m sticking to is that I uploaded it to the server just as I was going out the door last month to the Gales Storm Gathering with the plans to post a note about it when I got back. Yeah, I forgot.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did putting it together.

Kayak Mainline Episode 6.5 Streaming Now!

kayak mainline logo

Kelly Blades and I are very happy to announce the 6.5th episode of Kayak Mainline. We named it 6.5 because it’s an update to the 6th episode we pushed out the door last week before discovering that the sound quality wasn’t quite as good as it could have been. Sorry about that. This one is much better.

On Kayak Mainline episode 6.5 we learn about monster crocs, monster sturgeons and a crazy beaver attacking kids. KIDS! We also discover that Netherland weather forecasters might get in trouble if they are wrong. Plus your kayaking questions answered.

This one was actually recorded several weeks ago but August was so busy that we haven’t had time to publish this until now.

Kelly Blades and I are really excited to finally release Kayak Mainline episode #5. Things have been so busy over the past four or five weeks since we actually recorded this episode that we just got time to push it out the door today. Sorry it took so long. Sadly we have been to busy actually paddling.

With that in mind, we have episodes six and seven already complete so we should be releasing them closer together over the next couple of weeks to get ourselves caught up.

Here is what we learned about in this episode:

  • NOAA officially comes clean about mermaids
  • Another shark on kayak attack
  • Don’t go swimming in Lake Michigan if you are a man
  • We discover Google’s plans to map England’s waterways for Google Maps

 We also have a great interview with Keith Wikle, one of the organizers of the Gales Storm Gathering coming up this October.

Episode 4 of Kayak Mainline is posted and ready to roll. We decided to push this one out the door early rather then waiting for our usual two week break mainly because it was all done and sitting there so why not?

This week on Kayak Mainline we investigate the story of the canoeist who shot a power boater in the butt because waves tipped his canoe over. We also learn about the whitewater kayaker who got injured in a landslide triggered by the helicopter who was there to rescue him. Finally, did you know some guy is solo paddling across the Atlantic Ocean right now in a double kayak? We figure out what he is doing and discover more about his boat.

Oh yeah, we bring in our kayak fitness expert, Erik Ogaard from Toronto and try to get fit by osmosis over the phone.
