A couple of weeks ago, the staffers who put the videos together were up against a deadline and couldn’t get a local expert lined up. They asked if I would do a video about kayaking, and I agreed.
I’m somewhat reluctant to share the video with you, because there’s a reason I’m a print journalist and not a broadcaster. I don’t feel all that comfortable in front of the camera. But it’s not that easy to come up with blog posts several times a week, and this one fell into my lap. Besides that, I think the video turned out OK. It gives some basic tips about buying a kayak, getting into it and paddling calm lakes and rivers.
