You Must Take Your Waterproof Dry Bag on a Weekend Paddling Trip

Two POG Waterproof Dry Bags with Paddle Board

Last week our family took our waterproof dry bags out for a paddling adventure on a local lake.  This was our second full day outing on the lake.  We took paddleboards and kayaks and went out for the day.  We packed a lunch and all of our essentials in our POG Waterproof Dry Bags to insure our necessities stayed together and dry.

Waterproof Dry Bags are a Necessity

There are few things  worse than a wet towel, soggy sandwich and ruined camera gear.  Thankfully, our POG dry bags kept our goods nice and dry. We assembled the gear and our watercraft on the dock to prepare to launch.  We have several POG Waterproof Dry Bags in different colors and sizes to help keep our gear sorted, safe and above all dry.

Taking the family out for a day of adventure is near and dear to all of our hearts.  There is no comparing a day of fun, challenges, exercise and enjoying the beauty of nature to bring us closer together.  It helps to have beautiful weather and the right gear, like our POG Dry Bags to keep our gear safe and dry – including the camera that we took these photos with.

 Dry Bag Yoga on the lake

After embarking, we saw a yoga class being conducted on paddleboards!  My daughter and her fiend could not resist the temptation of displaying their yoga prowess on their paddleboards.  I would say the instructor is in no danger of being upstaged…

As yoga class ended, we moved on to paddle to the headwater of the lake.  There we found a nice group of rocks for a rest and a leisurely lunch.  Chips were not stale nor soggy and the sandwiches satisfied the appetite that we had worked up paddling the length of the lake. Everyone enjoyed lunch and we took some time to explore the surrounding woods, discovering a long dormant railhead.

Waterproof Dry Bags Can Be Used as a Backpack

We found out later that the railhead was used to transport granite away to market.  Many buildings in the Southeast and throughout the US are built of Stone Mountain Granite.  The mountain itself stands over 800 feet above the surrounding terrain and is the largest granite outcropping in the world.

Our POG Dry Bags had done the job of keeping everything dry.  Everyone enjoyed the break and we moved on to paddle and explore a bit. As I used my cellphone for a lot of these pictures, having the waterproof compartment on the outside for easy access to my phone is a great feature of the POG Waterproof Dry Bag and sets it apart from others.

Waterproof Dry Bags and Boards at the lunch stop

As often happens in family outings, a bit of squabbling over space on the beach led to a mishap.  The paddleboard was recovered by Dad and none the worse for its solo venture out onto the water. It would be nice if someone attached surf board leashes to these things.  That said, a quick venture out in the kayak and it was retrieved.

Our armada then set out to continue our paddle:

The girls decided to take a mid-paddle conference in the center of the lake.  The boys continued to paddle upstream.  I believe that they were trying to work out a way to combine their paddling efforts to become a catamaran.  The venture ultimately failed and led to POG Waterproof Dry Bag going overboard, but they had a great time trying and our gear floated and stayed dry.

We ended the day by slipping into dry clothes for the trip home.  Everyone had a terrific time and we all agredd we will head out again soon.  Thanks to POG Dry Bags, all of our gear stayed dry and the trip home was comfortable.  Stay tuned for our next adventure.
