He needs a proper life jacket. That'll slip right over his head if he goes in the water.

Good for him though. Awesome commute. Just get proper safety gear.

"In the more immediate future, he's planning to try and ski to school across the lake once it freezes."

Seems like there is a dangerous middle ground between these two modes of transportation that could end tragically if they're not smart about it.

There's a bike trail along that whole reservoir, that probably would have been easier.

He also needs a better kayak that he can use a spray skirt with for when the weather gets really cold but the water is still open.

I agree. Great idea kid. You already have your Phys Ed requirement taken care of.

Walking to school in the 60s in Michigan was ridiculous.  Girls were not allowed to wear pants to school except on the one day of the week that we had gym class. When I was in jr. high they finally started letting us wear pants. It was wonderful. Made the 2 mile trek to high school bearable.

/ not uphill either way

Hah. When I attended Michigan State U. people would ice skate to campus on the frozen Red Cedar River.

Daedalus27: Where does he store the kayak and gear when he gets to school?  He can't just leave that by the bike rack as the likelihood of it being stolen is high.


CSB:I grew up in a small town.  I rode my bike to school every day and never locked it.

One day my bike was missing.  It was fine, it's replaceable, and if not, whatever.

I walked home, and didn't tell my parents.

The next day my bike was at the rack and a kid told me "Hey, I was the one who took your bike.  See, I noticed you never lock your bike, and I was trying to teach you a lesson."

I said "The only lesson I've learned is that you're a thief."

I continued not locking my bike.  My bike was never taken again.
