Outdoor Retailer Wrap-up

Another year of Outdoor Retailer (OR) has come and gone.  For those of you who don’t know what OR is, it is the largest outdoor industry trade show in the whole world! IMG_3770.JPG It is held in our backyard in downtown Salt Lake City.   This year, we also had the industry Demo Day in our backyard as well because it was moved from Jordenelle Reservoir to Pineview Reservoir in Ogden Valley!  We spent all day on the beautiful banks of Pineview paddling and talking to folks from all over the world.  We were super busy and had tons of people stop by to give our boats a test run!  What a day!IMG_3768.JPG

After Demo Day, the indoor show begins.  We spend months preparing and designing both our booth and new kayaks to unveil at the show.  This year we went all out, even more than we have in the past.  We showcased all of the kayaks in our lineup at the Outdoor Retailer show this year and had such a great reaction!  Our booth was bright, exciting and extremely colorful with all of our different kayaks laid out neatly around the booth.  Here are a few pictures so you can see our design.  Our theme this year was a beautiful mountain vacation scene, complete with our own dock and cabin!  Look closely at the photos, you might see a new kayak!  We unveiled quite a few new boats and features this year, but they won’t be available until 2014.  Don’t worry, we’ll have information available soon!IMG_3796.JPG

Position at Lifetime Products- Watersports Marketing Manager for Lifetime and Emotion brand kayaks

How long at Lifetime Products- Since January 2012!  I came as a packaged deal with the acquisition of Emotion Kayaks where I’d been for over a year.


Topics I blog about- Events and news in water sports, places to kayak, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Any of the Kayaks and paddleboards.  One of these days I’ll get my hands on a Fold-up Trailer and a Camp and Tailgate Table!

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me- This question will always depend on the season!  When the weather outside is frightful, you can find me at one of the nearby ski resort enjoying the fresh snow and crisp air or snowshoeing through the mountains.  Once the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping, my Saturdays are spent outdoors hiking, backpacking, biking, paddle boarding or my most favorite activity of all, kayaking!  All while enjoying the company of good friends of course!

My favorite escape- Anything whitewater, whether it be kayaking or rafting.  A more relaxing escape would be taking my camera out into the wilderness to photograph everything from wildlife to serene landscapes.

A Workbench Like Daddy's
Ever run out of ideas for fun activities to do with your kids? Does your child enjoy craft projects but you never seem to have the right supplies to make something really cool? Well, take a trip to your local home improvement store and you're in for a treat! Our local Lowe's offers Build and Grow clinics for kids. Lowe's supplies all the materials and directions to assemble a simple woodworking project with your kids. They even give you a kid-sized Lowe's apron and real safety goggles...all for free! What a great deal! My 5-year-old son is really starting to get into "projects" and enjoys using his Daddy's tools to build things. So, a few weeks ago, we decided to try a Lowe's Build and Grow clinic. Lesson #1... we now know that these classes fill up FAST! We assumed we could just show up that day and we'd be able to partici...
Will Luck O' the Irish Help You Win A Lifetime Raised Garden Bed?
This giveaway has ended. Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day. And, as you know, tradition is to wear green. But, rather than wear green, we thought it would be more fun to give something green instead. Our Facebook fans had some really great green guesses yesterdayincluding some we didn't even think of! Money, green kayaks, and Earthtone playsets were all great guesses. However, we were thinking something along the less traditional green lines like a Lifetime Raised Garden Bed! Ok, so maybe it's not actually green in color. (Although there is a little green on the cover. Does that count?)But, you can fill a Lifetime Raised Garden Bed with lots of beautiful green vegetables and it can help you live a more "green" lifestyle. Ok, ok, kind of a stretch, we admit. But are you complaining? It's still a free giveaway! And, after all, th...
Recreational Kayaking is Fun and Safe For the Family
Recreational kayaking is a fun and safe way for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors. Many people are a little apprehensive when they hear the word "kayaking." They imagine people dropping off of 20 foot waterfalls and paddling through big wavy rapids. But that isnt the only way to kayak. In fact, the largest segment of kayaking is within the recreational sector. What is recreational kayaking? Recreational kayaking refers to paddling on flat water lakes, bays, slow-moving calm river ways, and calm oceans. No rapids involved! Flat-water paddling is a safe way to enjoy the water. Another misconception about kayaking is the Eskimo roll, which is another aspect of kayaking that only applies to whitewater or sea kayaking. Recreational kayaks are not meant to roll and they are not designed to keep you inside if you should flip y...
