I haven't seen the mention of a cart or something to carry all that stuff to your spot on the beach, I know the o-rings are small, but, it's the other stuff that keeps adding up. Something I like doing is freezing some of that lots of water, it keeps the food and drinks cold and you can drink it as it thaws.

@ hyzakite - excellent recommendation!! I was thinking I would just sling most of this crap over my shoulder while Beth helped me carry the cooler, but now I'm definitely thinking about finding/buying a cheap cart to make it easier!

In my experience, cheap cart + soft beach sand = worse than no cart. Unless you get something with big, fat wheels I wouldn't bother.

I didn't say anything about swimming. Beaches are for flying kites. Oceans are a place to stand while flying kites. :)


I'm with you Steve. Did we go anywhere near that gorgeous sparkling ocean in 5 days at KP? No we did not. Because we are so hardcore. :rockon: :matrix: And also the water was full of angry surfers who didn't like us much.

Just pretend all my statements are prefaced with IIRC, AFAIK, IMHO, and end with "Just my $.02," okay?
(And stop asking for cookies, all you new darkside converts! It was all just a ruse to get you here!)

@ Kahl - thanks for the tip, brother. Big ATV type wheels on a cart?? Check.

I'm sure at KP the air was full of angry kites that didn't like surfers too much!!
The air is for kites; the water is for surfing. So what the hell is the beach for?? A place for kite fliers and surfers to square off, it would seem... Guess I better add a taser to my list of things to bring. J/K!!
I feel (somewhat) sorry for the idiot surfer who tries to give me lip during my vacation.

I'd suggest a cheap plastic toboggan if carts don't work good on sand, we use them for taking equipment out on the frozen lake for ice fishing, but I imagine trying to find a toboggan in your area would be like trying to find a snowmobile or a snow blower in the desert.

Posted ImagePosted Image I know right?? Might be a little like trying to find a dune buggy out by where you live Posted Image Thank goodness for Amazon and the like.

Toboggan instead of a big-wheeled cart? Possible "check".

You can get these, various sizes, things called "Camel Backs". They are like a small backpack with a bladder in them for holding water (or Gatorade) and a tube that comes through the shoulder strap and hangs down. Simply shrug your shoulder and tilt your head to get to the straw and "Bam" drink done. The mouth piece you kind of bite on to open. My old one I used for bike riding and lasted a few hours! The back pack can hold all the stuff you don't want in your pocket.

I like the recommendation Rob!
I adore my Camelbak, I use it while kiting winter, spring, summer, or fall. 1.5 liters lasts me around 3 hours during winter/spring, and about 1.5 hours during summer/fall. You can see the Camelbak in action in my Mid-Vent Soul video, and actually, its been there during all 4 videos I've made.

I also like the Camelbak branded water bottles, and I'll be using them at the beach this year.

Tried all sorts of water bottles through the years!
Just got two of the large camelback bottles and they are just the job.
A great piece of kit for all activities.
Take care
