Land Paddling

It's not quite a jetpack, but it's pretty fun.

I was on the website of longboard manufacturer Kahuna Creations and was intrigued by the "Big Stick," a device that allows you to essentially stay on your skateboard and "paddle" down the road, no kicking involved. You can also use the rubber tip for breaking. It looked like a lot of fun, and it gives a "rowing" workout to skateboarding. But at $150 for a stick with a piece of rubber at the end, I thought, "Nah."

So I went to Lowe's and bought a rake handle and some of those chair-leg rubber things that keep your hardwood floors from getting scratched. Stick rubber thing on end of rake handle. Done. Cost: about $10.

Works good, lasts a long time. See below.
