Two very opposite sports, snowskiing and kayaking....................what do they have in common? While skiing in powder this morning (lots and lots and lots) of powder, I could only hear muted noises and I felt as though I was flying. What does this have to do with kayaking? It's the same type of feeling when the water is like glass and you glide along as though you are flying. You no longer belong to this earth with gravity pulling at you. You now belong to a freedom that you can only feel a few times in your life.
