Porta Bote Adventure at Canyon Lake (Tonto National Forest, Arizona)

November 19, 2013 |

This is our first adventure on our Porta Bote (Portable Folding Boat). Excited! We had passed by Canyon Lake just yesterday driving through the Apache Trail Scenic Byway. We’re so happy that this 12-ft folding boat fit on our Thule SUP racks, plus the accessories and a 6-hp motor fit in the back of the Mini Cooper. Amazing! Read More

Portable Folding Boat = Porta Bote

First learned about folding boats back on January 22 as I was researching about folding bikes (Brompton) and finally had the funds to purchase a used 2006 Porta Bote. It’s going to fit perfect on the roof racks of the Mini Cooper.

RV Park: Pelican’s Landing Resort (Sebastian, Florida)

May 1, 2014 |

Time to move from Riptide RV Resort & Marina to Pelican’s Landing Resort. We jumped on I-95N and have a 4 hour drive. It’ll be our first time experiencing summer weather (defined as rainy season from May to October) in Florida. We had researched a good location to stay… staying coastal as much as possible… that would be a good basecamp for some surf, beach visits, play on our porta bote, and close enough to theme parks. Here’s where we ended up staying. Read More

Another windy day so instead of taking the porta-bote out, we fish off of No Name Key Bridge… right next to the Old Wooden Bridge Marina where we’ve rented a boat slip for the month. We’ve caught various fish from the bridge before… namely, Cero Mackerel and Black Grouper but today we learned how to fish for giant tarpons! Read More

Fishing: No Name Key Bridge (Big Pine Key, Florida)

March 9, 2014 | 1

Haven’t tried fishing from any of the bridges here in the Florida Keys. It’s too windy to take the porta-bote out anyways. We head to No Name Key Bridge… right next to the Old Wooden Bridge Marina where we’ve rented a boat slip for the month. What an exciting day of fishing it was, too! Bill caught a Cero Mackerel and I caught a nicely sized (3-5lb) Black Grouper. Read More

RV Park: Quail Ridge RV Park (Mayer, Arizona)

November 11, 2013 | 9

RV Day #9: Time to move from Capri RV Resort to Quail Ridge RV Park. We jumped on I-8E and have a 3-4 hour drive. With colder weather approaching, we had researched a good location to stay that wouldn’t have temperatures below freezing and would allow us to explore somewhat North Arizona with the Mini Cooper – Red Rocks of Sedona, Bearizona, Montezuma Castle, and the Grand Canyon.
