These days, taking a family on a vacation is no easy feat.  Not financially and not logistically.  It requires money, planning, and time!  But it is totally worth it!  Times are changing and so are vacation options.  You don’t need to go to Disney Land to have a great family experience.  Why not plan a vacation around kayaking? Almost anywhere there is water, there is someone who rents kayaks.  But, if you have your own, that is great!  There are so many great paddling destinations in the United States it would take forever to list them all.  The best part about a kayaking vacation is that you often get to experience a new place or situation that so many others don’t get to!  Kayaking out to a secret cove, or down a calm moving river in a desolate canyon are all g...

It's Fall Storage Season - Lifetime Has You Covered
As we welcome in the Fall season, we have to farewell theoutdoor entertaining season at least in most parts of the country. For those of you gearing up for cold and snowy winters, it's time to start packing up your outdoor areas including your pool, patio, deck, and yard. In the next few weeks, plan to cover the pool, clean the grill, and put away everything you wont need again until next summer. Unfortunately, all the things that live in your yard and on your patio during the summer suddenly now need a winter home. What to do with so much stuff? Well, first of all, sort through everything and determine if you really need to keep it. Often times outdoor items quickly get tattered, faded, and broken by the end of the summer and it's better to simply trash it. Or, if it's something you don't use anymore or have outgrown, consi...
