Want to be on the water? Paddle boarding requires a minimum amount of supplies and does not require a huge expanse of water to have fun and a good workout. It's easy to load on top of your car. I've paddled on Tomales Bay at Hearts Desire, Donner Lake and many small lakes in Northern California. It would be fun to have some company and since there are no paddle board meetups I'm initiating one. It's great for your strength and balance.
