Music video with whitewater kayaking and a puppet

I'm looking for a music video and can't remember the artist or title for the life of me. It has a guy paddling whitewater in a kayak camouflaged in branches with a Muppet-like puppet. I think he was playing a banjo and also paddled with it. If memory serves, it was filmed in Nova Scotia and it's about 4-5 years old. My toddler has been asking to see kayaking videos and I think he'd love this one! I remember liking the song, too. Thanks for any help!

Looking for kayaking route for multi-day Lake Powell trip.

We've been scouring the internet for cool routes and it's just not cutting it. There are a lot of routes that people suggest that have heavy traffic and boating. We're looking for something a little more remote or secluded. [more inside]

Curious about your experiences with Oru folding kayaks?

Can anybody who owns an Oru folding kayak tell me what it's like and how well it works for them? My wife and I are considering getting a pair of Bay+ folding kayaks and we'd love to learn anything we can from you - there are reviews online, but not a ton of comprehensive ones, given how expensive these are. We've looked at inflatable kayaks, but we're looking for something that's really simple to assemble and doesn't involve inflation or assembling a whole frame, yet also stows reasonably easily into a compact car and can be hiked with. So far the Oru Bay+ seems to fit the bill best. [more inside]

Help me get in shape for my travel adventure holiday

Because I wanted to make my fortieth something special, I asked about adventure holidays here before settling on slickrock's adventure island. But now I need to get in shape for this adventure. Since I'll mainly be snorkeling, scuba diving, and kayaking, I was wondering if there is a particular training plan for those activities. [more inside]

Kayaking in L.A. area?

I took a trip up to the pacific-northwest and tried kayaking for the first time (and second, and third) and became hooked. Can anyone recommend some good kayaking spots (river or ocean), tour companies that do camping trips etc with kayaking involved, or other nifty ideas that I haven't thought of in Southern California? I live in L.A. but a few hours drive seems reasonable.

Good Kayak for Both Lake and Ocean Near Hawaii, with Storage?

Kayak recommendations... I have never been in a kayak, but have had a lot of experience in canoes. I want something that would be decent for a lake, but I plan on moving to Hawaii in about 2 years, so I would want it to be good for the sea too. Also storage would be nice to have too, so I can carry some equipment for some over-nighters. What about Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 or 140?
