I am thinking of pursuing a MA in history focusing on an aspect of transportation.  Consequently, I am always excited to find something about kayaking.  Sean Smith gets the credit of making me aware of this video.

In 1980’s an Australian soft drink manufacture used a kayak to promote their Solo lemon flavored carbonated beverage.  I do not know if the beverage still exists but the commercial makes me thirsty.

I find it interesting how companies are promoting the healthy lifestyle of kayaking to promote the purchase of a different type of product.

How does kayaking sell people on the idea on wearing a Medical Alert Bracelet?  Well this video makes me think…

Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center used kayaking in one of their commercials promoting the effectiveness of their cardiac care.  I know nothing about this hospital.  Nevertheless, I have met several people that have started kayaking after a cardiac problem.  One of my close guest’s health has improved greatly after she started kayaking.  There is no research to my knowledge being done to prove that kayaking promotes a healthy lifestyle and can help cardiac problems.  Moreover, I think if your doctor says go paddling then I think you should.  And it would be a cool way to convince your spouse to get a cool toy!
