Where time goes . . . with a sea kayak

Ever stop to think about where time goes with a sea kayak?

The top 25 ways to spend time
  1. Packing kayaking gear
  2. Putting away gear
  3. Hanging paddling gear up to dry
  4. Shaking sand out of gear
  5. Washing chlorine and salt water off gear
  6. Hauling gear from place to place
  7. Shopping for more gear
  8. Looking for gear . . . "Now where did I put the compass?"
  9. Organizing gear
  10. Putting gear on
  11. Taking gear off
  12. Wishing you had more gear
  13. Buying other people paddling gear as gifts 
  14. Admiring other people's gear and asking, "Where did you get that?"
  15. Loaning people gear, "You forgot your paddle?"
  16. Listening to people's comments about your gear: "You have too much paddling gear! What nice gear!"
  17. Responding to comments about your awesome paddling gear: "Yeah, half the garage is full of kayaking gear, but there's more gear in my closet, and lots more in the guest room, and still more in the furnace room. Some of it, I can't remember where I put it or who borrowed it. Thanks! I love my gear!"
  18. Planning trips
  19. Looking at maps
  20. Attending events
  21. Paddling
  22. Making new friends and hanging out with old friends
  23. Having fun
  24. Getting lost
  25. Doing it all again tomorrow
Now, where did the time go? It goes too fast, and it takes forever.

How can we make this more interesting?
