Klepper's solar-powered E-Kayak gives your arms a rest - Images Paddling lakes, bays and rivers by kayak is a rewarding experience, but it can also be quite tiring. That's why Klepper offers paddlers the benefit of a solar-powered electric drive in its E-Kayak kit. The paddler can kick back and let the small motor take over the forward-floating load. The design adds a little modern-day technology and convenience to Klepper's classic folding kayak.

How to Become a House Sitter and Never Pay for Accommodation A lot of readers were interested in learning more about house-sitting, the method of watching people’s houses while they’re away in exchange for free accommodation.

Using a Compass - The Basics - Brian's Backpacking Blog I quite often run into fellow backpackers during my hikes and enjoy chatting with them about where they’re from and what they’re doing, the usual trail chit-chat. A lot of the time our conversations include discussions about the current hike and conditions along the trail, where to find water and areas to avoid if necessary, sharing information with fellow hikers is one of the best parts of meeting people along the trail, in my opinion. However, on more than one recent occasion (too often, in fact) the conversation has included the seemingly innocent question of “so, where are we on the trail – any idea?” To which I am always shocked and usually ask, “don’t you carry a map and a compass?” This elicits several knee-jerk responses, the most frequent being, “yes, but I’m not exactly sure how to use the compass,” along with a sheepish grin.
