In Pittsburgh they were predicting 92 for a high on the weekend and I could not imagine braving that weather in my condo so I packed up my Vera overnight bag, turned up the air conditioner for the cats and headed to Ohio for the weekend!
I was really, really excited to get there this weekend because I found this wonderful deal I could not wait to use my new toy!!
I am not sure if you all have "Buy, Sell, and Trade" groups on Facebook for the area you live in or not. My sister showed me these groups and now I am obsessed! If you do not follow yours already, you should! I have gotten so many great deals on these Facebook groups!
I have been looking for a reasonable Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) for a long time time now! I almost bought one last weekend for $350 - and it had no paddle and was only 10 feet. The one the "buy, sell and trade" person was selling with 11 1/2 foot, with paddle for $150 and was perfect for what I wanted! I was so excited to find out that I was first to be interested in this gem!
I had to drive about 45 minutes to pick it up and it was so worth it!!! The seller helped me load it into my little Honda Civic. (Funny side story: when I got there he seemed puzzled that I thought I could fit it in my car as I have Honda Civic 2 door but I explained that I fit a Christmas tree so I was sure it would fit- HA!)
Here it is looking back from the front seats...
Me with my new BFF in the passenger seat...
We had the paddle break already but I think it is just due to it is a year old and I am not sure how it was treated prior to me so I already purchased a replacement on Amazon. I figure $30 is nothing when I have saved hundreds on the board itself!
I will leave you with two videos of my nieces and nephews paddling away! What a great find!!
Have you ever tried kayaking or paddle boarding? How about a fun ride on a jet ski? What are your plans for the 4th? Watch local fireworks or travel?
I hope everyone stays cool and safe this fourth of July holiday!!!
