Camping, Market Friday Style

(Edited)


It was a day well spent. I went to Dick's Sporting Good Store to check out a few supplies for one of my daughters. She was looking for a proper kayak that she could weave in and out of the Tidewater Region, specifically the Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. She knew what she wanted out of the kayak, she just wasn't sure what was available. While she could have gone online to see what they had, having done a similar purchase two years ago taught me that seeing is believing. It was really much easier to reach out and touch the merchandise. This way, you will KNOW better what you want. These kayaks started at $479.00 and she had the good grace to look shocked.


I am not wild about any of the colors, to be honest. But, I will keep that to myself. It is not for me, so there is nothing for me to fret about. Is there a color in thee that you like? To be fair, there are dozens of colors, I was just being a cheapskate with the pictures. What color are you looking for?

She did a water rescue class a while back and all through covid, she remained an avid kayaker. She has the shorter kayak, I call it a kiddie one, that she learned how to roll over in it, all the while kayaking.



I don't mind saying that when she was taking this course, I didn't know. She was away at the University, never letting me know she was out rolling kayaks to learn before the course started. Hello? Parental permission? Oh, wait! She was over eighteen. Mama told me there would be days like this. Did I mention that I should have homeschooled college? Kidding. Maybe.

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on Hive.


20220721_152112 mf.jpg


Paddle life vests are a must when you get in the water, although I always carry one, I have to admit, I don't always have it on. I am not arrogant enough to think nothing will ever happen, and I do wear one when I am out on the ocean, but, when I am on a lake, I have to say that it seems less likely that something unexpected will happen. Still, I will try to be better. These life vests start at @29.95, but the average one is about $40.00.


20220721_152218 mf.jpg


This is one of the best little portable grills for a camping trip. I had one and didn't fully appreciate it. I ended up giving it away on the last move and when I went to replace it, I realized just how nice it really was. I had gotten it at a Coleman store and it was on clearance, and got it for well under $100.00. I won't even tell you what it cost me to replace it.


20220721_152654mf.jpg


This would be for the Camp Chef... That is so not me! And I am very against spending $500.00 on a portable grill unless you really take your camping seriously. If you insist on doing that, can we possibly Made for two people, this tube features a built-in cooler and two cup holders? The two side handles make this inflatable tube easy to use resist hiring a cook? Look at that one more time... $500.00?


20220721_152359mf.jpg


I am a huge fan of hammocks. I prefer them over sleeping bags. Has anyone ever tried to sleep on a hammock? I sleep like a baby. For real. This is a double hammock with hooks. they start at $59.00 and run up to $199.00.


20220721_152444mf.jpg


The skydome tent has a room darkening capability. The darkness actually makes the tent more efficient in keeping the temperature down in the tent. It sleeps 4 people and is $149.99 - before you put that in your cart at Dick's Sporting Goods Store, I have to confess that I just looked it up on Amazon and see that they offer it up at $91.54. They also have a six-person tent for a little bit more at Dicks.


20220721_152537mf.jpg


Who doesn't want/need a new Nalgene bottle? I always do. Perhaps I cannot stand the smell of plastic and I constantly get a new one, hoping the outcome will be different. Not even one time.


20220721_152553mf.jpg


First aid kits (you need one if you are going camping!) Walkie-Talkies, Trekking poles, all sorts of little-needed toys.


20220721_152725 mf.jpg


I know she was looking at the inner tubes for the river and I found this one here that was a two-seater lounge. The best of both worlds is floating down the lazy river with a friend! This tube has a built-in cooler and two cup holders. The two side handles make this inflatable an easy-to-use piece! Price: $29.00 and it even comes with a patch kit!


20220721_152737mf.jpg


WATER SHOES!! A must-have when you are in the river. I wonder if the strawberry ones come in my side? These are kids sized, the adults are on a picture I didn't post. These run $9.99 and $11.99 respectively. They used to be cheaper two years ago, but, I have to admit, they are made much better.


20220721_152804mf.jpg


The life vests are mostly of the L.L. Bean persuasion, and start at $34.99 but, like everything else, what isn't expensive?


20220721_152854mf.jpg


The are short silicone swim fins that make for a higher kick rate, great for faster propulsion through the water. They are great for training and help propel you further, saving some of your arm strength to go longer. In my opinion, these are best suited for an experienced swimmer. The price? $74.99 Fun just got too expensive!


20220721_153001mf.jpg


All kinds of plastic water bottles by Hydro Flash. I don't remember what the cost was on them, and what do I see here? A Yeti bucket. What could they possibly want for a bucket that I can get at Lowes Hardware store for nearly nothing? Be still my heart!!! Can you believe it is $40.00 - just because it says Yeti on it! Let's not be brand conscience, yes? The chair is nice as the mesh fabric lets it breathe.


20220721_153102mf.jpg


I want to say yes, but, I can't lie. It is not possible for me to wear any one of those. Just not happening.


20220721_153017mf.jpg


Shot a few hoops to the mortification of my daughter. Really? Come back here and play one-on-one with your mother. Don't make me call your name out loud! That is okay, there was a ten-year-old that was happy to take her place. She is replaceable after all. Kidding. No person is replaceable. I let the kid win. He tried really hard. I wanted to tell him I was no good and he didn't have to try so hard.


Center Crest.png

They were standard bikes, but, I almost always bring one camping because sometimes walking is too far or too slow. I like to walk most of the time, but, there are times when it is a little bit quicker to use the bike.


20220721_153307mf.jpg


There was a roar from the crowds. I'm not sure if they won the game or just felt like yelling about something!


20220721_153333mf.jpg


There was a little 16-year-old sales clerk following me because I was taking pictures. I turned around and said to him, "If you stand still long enough, I will take your picture too." He scattered like he was missing a clearance sale.


20220721_153428mf.jpg


It was certainly fun shopping with her, getting and giving some ideas of what she will need and what she is looking for. She needs so much, but, I offered up my equipment until someday, in the future, she will get some of her own, That is the best, to get your won.


I would say that she learned a lot about the equipment, its needs, wants, and things that are just fun, but, nothing driving her to purchase them now. Do you research your equipment thoroughly before purchasing? Have you bought a piece of new camping equipment lately? Was there anything that surprised you about the purchase? What advice would you give to someone looking to purchase equipment and a new kayak? Now that I am done with this post, I believe we must have a flower, to color my world. #alwaysaflower. These are the lovely blooms of lantana.

I love the monochrome kayaks especially the yellow one. Its price is very reasonable. The store has many accessories. Don't you find the ones we wear in our foot somewhat obstructive in movement?

It is best to walk with a person and use a life jacket, as precautions are necessary. Camping and drinking juice in front of waves is great.

shoplifster taking pictures of what to steal or not in aisle 7 🤣🤣🤣🤣 .

The crazy colours for a kayak is to make it easier to find for the recuers if needed.
and about wearing a vest or not on a boat on a lake depends on the boat and your swimming skills today,
yesterday we had another sad reminder that not every tourist can swim or has life saving vests equiped .
Not sure how well your Dutch is these days but .. : https://www.gelderlander.nl/binnenland/lichaam-vader-duits-gezin-gevonden-na-kano-ongeval-op-veluwemeer-br~ad802ee9/

Ik weet genoeg om gevaarlijk te zijn. :)

That was such a sad story, Mick @stresskiller I am a good swimmer, but, even good swimmers can have problems. I try to be safe and I say lakes I bring them but, many times don't put them on. I suppose if I were canoeing in unfamiliar territory, I might.

Children will ALWAYS wear a life vest when with me. Have you ever tried to help save someone who cannot swim??? They will take you under with them! Thanks for the article!

That makes sense with the kayak color! Thank you! I am off to bed, but, when I get up, I still want to check out your posts! Thank you for stopping by !

Haha!!! I almost fell over when I read that! LOL I saw that she was clinging to the buoy. I pray for the five-year-old, but, chances are, she is gone too.

Losing a mother and a sister! What a tragedy.

Loved that and your tour through the store made me drool @dswigle .

I have always enjoyed camping, sport & outdoors shops and I always explain to people that these shops are dam dangerous for me as I burn way too much plastic (bank cards) in them and always want to buy way more than I can even dream of affording.

I think the bank wisened up to this and these days they have given me very limited plastic to carry...... "tears in my eyes I tell you" lol.
Thanks again, that was great to read and see :)

Yes!! That is dangerous! :) I have always been a saver, spend a little, save a lot. My dad always says to pay yourself first, and I did. No matter how little, I save some, every week. Little by little, it makes a dent.

Most of my shopping is window shopping. I can be satisfied with looking for the most part.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Sounds like a fun time with her even if she didn’t want to shoot hoops 😂

I like the blues purple kayak myself
I think I last kayaked in my early 20s I used to do it regularly including or acting the rolls

Prices are crazy and so many happy to pay more for a name brand he’ll you pay extra to advertise for them 😂

Here is my post for this week

It was fun and she laughed at me as I missed many of my shots. :)

I am used to the kayaks being bright colored, well, at least most of the ones I have seen. There seems to be a tendency to lower the color saturation. It was pointed out to me that they up it so that they can be spotted easily. That makes sense to me.

I think Kayaking is one of those things that you pick right back up, just like you never stopped. That is my story and I am sticking to it.

Isn't it crazy, the prices that you have to pay? I have seen prices double and triple depending on the brand. I will admit, that some brands are better, so it is good to check out and learn about your product. It is crazy though~ But, thank you, I don't want to bankroll your advertising budget! :)

Wonderful visit to the sporting goods “mega” store. They do have so much in many ranches.
I do that too, at home I do check online for the prices, and 80% of the time I get things cheaper. The exact same product.

Yes… she learned a lot from looking around and what would be good.
Thanks for taking us along. I do crave a camping trip now 🏕 hahaha 🤣 one day in a nice forest at a lake.

The colours of the kayak are also so not me hahaha hope she found a nice one to her liking.
Bit by bit young ones can build up their gear. It is fun to watch.
Hahaha you made me laugh when she didn’t tell you about the course. They grow up quickly.

Great captures… to bad you didn’t catch the 16 year old one hahaha 🤣😂🤣😂🤣 a good way to make them disappear. Funny funny…

Have a wonderful Market Friday today Denise. 👋🏻👋🏻🥰🤗

I got the back of him going down an aisle, but, not a great shot. I was a great way to make him disappear.

She did learn a lot from going and being able to put her hands on things. I love the internet, but, it will never take the place of the experience of going through and comparing side by side. You can get close on the internet, but, I cannot feel texture, fabric, or many other things. I also like the everyday interaction with other humans. :) hear it is good for one's mental health.

I do like that after I have done the shopping, then I get online and shop for real. I sometimes will go to the store and get it, especially if I have the time and there is no need to ship.

Oh, yes! A nice lake or forest. The last time we went camping, it was at the beach! :) Close to it. I could walk in two minutes. It was fun!

Paris!!! Wonderful! Thanks for dropping the link!

You are right, seeing, feeling it in a shop and even getting advice from a person is the best thing. We choose to go to shops and try to support the locals little ones.
Yes, we do need other people around us 🤓

Wow, in 2 minutes to the beach. Sounds wonderful.

How are you dear friend @dswigle good afternoon
You always surprise us with your Friday market, this place is great, and what a variety of products to spend the day outdoors

Wow! That is expensive @jlufer !! There are kayaks that are only $249.00 here. These were higher-end, but, you don't really need to buy that expensive. I am always surprised at the prices in Argentina! What keeps them so high?

I am glad you enjoyed the sporting store! Thank you!

Hi Denise!

I think I will relate to this soon

I don't mind saying that when she was taking this course, I didn't know. She was away at the University, never letting me know she was out rolling kayaks to learn before the course started.

I wonder how many hobbies like that my son will acquire without me knowing about it, but I hope he chooses one that is not so expensive, hehe

By the way, I love sleeping in hammocks. And it always reminds me of my childhood in my grandparents' beach house where we slept in a big corridor full of hammocks and were lulled by the sea breeze.

This is my contribution to this Market Friday.
https://peakd.com/hive-196308/@coquicoin/empanadas-orientales-for-market-friday

I am okay with her doing it now, although I still don't like the whitewater rapids. But, I can not protect here for life, even if I want to. The hobby is actually not that expensive as most people have extra kayaks and happily loan them out, My daughter has one now, but, she worked at school in the recreation club and earned money to buy one. They usually are able to get good discounts. As close as I am to my kids, we will never be informed of everything they are doing while they are in school. It gets too busy and they don't think of it as so very important a special phone call has to be made.

The hammocks sound very familiar. As there were nine of us kids, hammocks worked best at my grandmothers or out camping.

Thanks so much for participating!

I can understand that. They have so much to do in college that a phone call home to say they're going to do an extreme sport is the least they think about, hehe. But you're right, we can't protect them from everything, even if our mother instinct is what would like.

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been in focus around here these days, too much to do with my son moving out in a couple of months.

And it's always a pleasure to participate in Market Friday.
Have a lovely week 🌸

I am not wild about any of the colors, to be honest.

😱

How could you say that?? They're all wonderful! Everyone needs a kayak. I need a kayak.

(I need a place to store a kayak)

I want to go kayaking now. I've seen the rest of your post but.. kayaks.

I agree!!! Everyone needs a kayak! I have them hanging in my garage! (and at the shore house too) There is no real room needed. Do you have a garage? If no, they will hang from the ceiling in the basement.

They really are all wonderful colors, but being visible is my reason for color choice. How visible depends on so many different factors. Color is just one of them. Any color can be hard to see in less than ideal conditions. In reality, color doesn't matter too much, so get whatever color makes you happy. :)

I know, the post is meh... but, the kayaks. I love, love, love them.

Thanks, Victor!! @wwwiebe

Looking at the products above, I realized how I miss going outdoor with my friends. I remember when we tried kayaking before and we saw a lot of wonders in the waters. How I wish I could do it again soon.

Anyway, thank you so much for another #MarketFriday that we love that you initiated @dswigle. Cheers!

By the way, here's my entry:

Are you a fellow kayaker? Yay! I love kayaking! It is fun because almost anyone can do it. There is no huge skill used to do it. And it is great exercise and fun!

I hope you get to do it soon!!

Thank you so much for dropping your link!

Our lake has a good bit of traffic, so I prefer a bright colored kayak... I need to stand out so as to not be hit.

Oh if you want sticker shock, go over and check out the price on those Yeti coolers. YIKES!!!

I think 35 bucks is very reasonable for the life vests. It is easy to drop double that on a decent vest.

I finally got my Market Friday post done...Yay!

I know!! Isn't it crazy! I thought it was crazy with the bucket of nothing! I couldn't believe it.

Noooo. I already priced a Yeti Cooler a few years ago for Christmas. Santa went on strike, so no Yeti. It is reasonable, but, I am unrealistically cheap, although not with safety. I'll pay whatever it is to be safe.

What? #MarketFriday on MAREKETFRIDAAY?? Get outa town!

Now this is my kind of Market Friday post, Denise! 🛶💦☀️

Who that grew up in the 70s doesn't love looking at all the toys and do dads for outdoor activities and buying a thing or two even though our oldie, forest green Coleman gas stoves still work (if we could just find them!) and aluminum fishing boat still floats?

How cool is it that your daughter has taken up kayaking and learning combat rolls?! She definitely has her mother's adventurous DNA!

Here's my MF post, first post I've cranked out in ages...

Stay cool and hydrated! @dswigle 🆒️😎🚰

I have the old Coleman stove!!! It is at the shore house in case anyone goes camping from there - so things don't have to be drug around, just in case! So many of my relatives go there from time to time and I don't mind having it on hand, there is only so much you can use. (and store!) There are two kayaks there too as I find it easier all the way around. We send the older equipment there. Still usable!

The combat rolls are so cool and she taught her younger sister how to do them. I freely admit that I haven't attempted, but, I may surprise them. I may say yes one day. LOL

Woo hoo! #MarketFriday loves you!

Oh my gosh. I can lose hours in Dick’s sporting goods! One of these days I’m going to write a Market Friday post about my hilarious attempts to purchase a catcher’s glove pad for my left-handed son. (They never did get it right!)

I love kayaking. That is so amazing that your daughter has done all that training! And yeah, they stop asking our permission after a while, don’t they! Do audacious. Proud of you for taking on the 10 year-old in basketball. You go girl!!

Here’s my link for this week: https://peakd.com/hive-196308/@jayna/market-friday-the-saturday-edition

I went to your post first, so ignore the part where I asked you to drop your link!

I am left-handed with five out of nine siblings southpaws, four of them boys and all baseball players!! I totally hear you! My mom is the leftie. I understand!

I thought that is what kids did. So little I know! LOL A ten-year-old is just my speed. :) Thank you for stopping by and dropping your link! I hope you are having fun right now!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Wow... These are really beautiful and colorful.
I can't imagine myself near water say more of swimming and all.
Am hydrophobic.

Maybe my best part of these games would be the camping in that lovely
hammocks, i guess I like the caps, they would be a perfect shade from the sun when am in the farm.

Another I liked were those water shoes, I wonder if they are meant to stay durable or water proof to protect our legs.

This post bring so much memory of childhood I never get to experience, not even camps or cycling but I enjoy watching others peoples outing.

Thanks for showing us this colorful place.

I also went visiting to a fabric store here.

I remember that about you! Well, you aren't the first. Many people fear it, probably not phobic, but, afraid enough for it to impede their life.

The hammocks are so wonderful!! We use them and I like them more than a sleeping [email protected] The rhythmic back and forth is so comforting to the soul, allowing for sweet dreams to settle in. The water shoes are so that you don't step on anything in the water, they are not waterproof, by dry quickly.

I never went to camps, as there were nine kids in my family, but, my parents took us camping to get us away for a little bit. Some day, you will enjoy the fun with your own children, and you will be able to enjoy watching them enjoy themselves. I sometimes did things with my children that I never did as a child growing up, but I actually get great pleasure in it, still.

God is good and I believe you will be richly rewarded for the love you so freely give to your family. I really do, and I actually pray for it. ❤️ Thank you for being part of the challenge!

#MarketFriday loves you!

I've never been kayaking and I suppose at my age, I won't ever be doing it, but it does look fun. I agree on the colors of those kayaks in the photo, not so great.

Amazing what all you can invest in for camping, things to make the "roughing it" easier....LOL.....

I have camped a little back in the day and although I did have some fun times because of the others we were around, in general, I would never prefer it for a great vacation. When I go on vaca, I want to be somewhere nice and be pampered.

It isn't difficult at any age. The hardest part is getting in the boat, although at most of the lakes I pull it in and hop in. So, it really isn't too difficult. The colors just didn't do much for me, but, we have six, and 2 are multicolored and the others are one color.

I love a good vacation, but, we still camp out for the pony swim every year, even though the shore house is close! It is a group thing and they all love camping, although it is so freaking hot right now! My brothers all love camping and the family fun still drives it. Of course, my sisters and I love to have a nice girl vacation! :)

I don't know, El! I'll paddle by and pick you up! :)

Kayaking on rivers is a wonderful outdoor recreation, but I prefer an ordinary boat and a lake with a set of fishing rods and spinnogs)))
It always seemed to me that I would turn upside down on a kayak ...)))🤣 😂😅
A good store, but usually in such stores and prices...good. I like to make many devices with my own hands, this is also part of the adventure :)
And it's also nice to travel by bike:

My wife and I have been talking about getting some sit on top kayaks for a while now. We just don't have a good way to haul them around when we are also towing the trailer. Not without investing a ton of money into some big rack system for the back of the truck. We have a camp stove that we keep in the garage to cook stuff that would stink up the house like bacon and taco meat.

Cool straw hats! I've been wanting to buy a hat like this for a long time. But I don't see them in the store.

Did I ever tell you are funny? Replacing your kid for not playing hoops with you? Lol! I have slept in a hammock and I always do that back home. We have the ones that are made of strings woven together to build a hammock. It was my youngest brother's project back then and we had used that for a long time.

I have only tried kayaking once at the beach and it was a funny experience for the waves were strong that day and there was no one to assist us in getting into the kayak and thus we were tossed and turned holding the kayak down trying to get it. We had bruises as were toppled over and over and the kayak would hit. It didn't help that we find it all funny and we were laughing to death but we made it in finally after forever.

I would like to try any of those kayaks there. Let's go just find something to wear that matches those colors :D

Now that you know the price of the tent at Dick's, then it is better to purchase online then :D I do relate with you about seeing is believing. While it is all convenient to purchase online, it's still best to see the item first and to see if it is cheaper in physical store or online. That's a wise move.

I'd stay away from the grill too. That's too much for me. Why not go with the old ways instead? Much more authentic experience :D

As always, here is a late entry for me for #MarketFriday https://ecency.com/hive-196308/@leeart/earth-house-at-maryknoll-ecological

Enjoy the rest of the week!

I have 2 of the all red perception kayaks 10.0 …. They are awesome. Best investment ever. We kayak all summer long… mostly Lake Superior and Lake Huron.
