If you could kayak anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Me? Antarctica. The scenery is awesome! Plus, I would feel a little like Ernest Shackleton.

what does everyone have?

With some practice, about 20 minutes to set up, atleast thats what the experts say. I have only had one outing in one and then the owner and I spent around an hour getting it seaready, but that was with a very relaxed tempo and an instructive atmosphere. :-)

wow, never heard of Klepper.  just watched a YouTube video of someone putting one together.  interesting and ingenious, though it does appear to take quite a bit of effort.

Just found the group and thought I should join not been doing much paddeling in the later years, but was a keen canoeist and some time kayaker. Have taken an interest in getting on the water again and are a bit intrigued by the folding boats, such as Klepper.
