Climbing Magazine Shizzle Drizzle His Bizzle with lightload Towels

Lightload Towels ,or “Expand-O-Towel” as Audra Ord of Climbing Magazine addresses it in the October 2008 issue of Climbing Magazine, passes her field test with flying colors. “If Towelly from “South Park” were real he’d for shizzle drizzle bizzle with a Dyna-E International Lightload Towel”she says. If lightload Towels were human I say, they’d be super men. Audra goes on to mention how great the towels are when weight is an issue and how superabsorbent they are when put to the wet test. Climbers, hikers, campers do invest a few bucks in lightload Towels gear, It could save you one day in more ways than one.

The Escape New York ride was a huge success with a record number of riders.

And, in addition to the usual crowd, we put a lot of riders on the road who wouldn’t otherwise have done this kind of distance.

(Among them was Recycle-A-Bicycle’s ‘Kid’s Ride Club’ who we invited to do the 50 mile route.)

 

Having Lightload Towels on board as a sponsor/donor was a big plus for us, helping us to raise a record sum for ENY which we are thrilled to split between NYC’s Transportation Alternatives and Recycle-A-Bicycle.

Crazy Kayaker Paddles 1,704 Miles Down Mississipi River with Lightload Towels

“It took me five weeks to complete the 1,270 miles from Burlington, IA to New Orleans. I reached New Orleans on Wednesday, July 11. My journey ended at Audubon Park, a few miles from downtown and the French Quarter. I had paddled a total of 2,742 km (1,704 miles) in 59 days.
This will be my last journal posting for a while. I am currently working on the book about my adventure, and all the time I have for writing will be taken up by the book for the next few months. I will post excerpts from the manuscript from time to time (if my publisher agrees) and will keep everyone posted on my next planned adventure.
I will announce my next river adventure soon…”

Thank you!
Jacob, a.k.a the Crazy Kayaker

Congrats! Job well done.
