Personal Commentary

Kayaking! It's the thing to do in Adair Co. right now and I'm sure across the country.

We have some great Kayaking routes here in Adair Co. - even in the city limits or so I hear from the "locals". I'm thinking about buying one myself which made me wonder...

Are our Tourism folks aware of the hot commodity we have right here in front of us with our lake and waterway access?

Seems like now would be a good time to capitalize on the Kayaking trend that doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon.

Some to do thoughts came to mind for us:
  • Promote our kayak friendly waterways

  • List approved entry and exit spots and map them along with various routes folks could take and the length of time for each of those routes

  • Mile mark some of the popular routes for kayakers and for emergency personnel

  • List kayak rental locations
All of this may already exist and maybe I'm out of the loop?

My lunch break thoughts of the day . . .

Best regards,
/s/ Shannon Sexton, Chief Executive Officer, Statesline Steel, LLC.
