Yes, I bought a kayak! ( I already have the car and the cat...)
Recently I fell in love with kayaking, because it is peaceful and refreshing - and a great escape from being an Oyomesan.
A Canadian man living in Sapporo was selling his old kayak and he offered it to me cheaply. He brought it to my home...and I fell in love. Impulse buy.
BUT! Afterwards I thought....my car is small, the kayak is big...will they fit?
Today I will go to the Suzuki garage and ask the staff about roof top carriers and weight and length. I am really REALLY hoping I did not make a mistake.
The Canadian man kindly offered to buy back to kayak if the car is too small.
I am lucky for that offer. Impulse buys are dangerous!
