After just one month of enjoying our new hobby, I bought our very first kayak! I purchased an Intex Challenger K1 kayak after it was recommended by several seasoned kayakers. I read reviews, did my research and made my final purchase from Walmart.com (as the price was cheapest there). One day after receiving our sweet boat, Wynston and I took it out on the water for a spin! My theme as of late has been kayaking with dogs, so here is our Intex Challenger K1 kayak review.
I’ve been living in Arizona for 20 years. I feel like I’ve enjoyed a majority of what the Grand Canyon State has to offer, but up until recently I had never been to the “local” lake in the greater Phoenix area – Lake Pleasant. Lake Pleasant is located in Peoria, AZ and it’s known for being “the party lake.” I suppose this is one of the reasons I hadn’t checked it out. Unlike the Midwest, not many people own boats in the desert, and it’s not exactly a quick drive to get to water. However, I was dying to get back out on the lake for kayaking after Wynston and I had a blast in Payson kayaking for the first time. My best friend and I decided to check out Lake Pleasant with our dogs since it’s one of the closest lakes around (about an hour drive).
