Default $25 super foam noodle

Over at the Gilford Walmart yesterday, close to the fishing dept, and next to the pfd's ........ what do they have ...... something new ..... a bright blue foam noodle for $25 that is different from the normal foam noodle. It looks like they have three in stock, sitting on the shelf ..... maybe they stock it on a trial basis to see if they sell what with the high price.

Is a lot different than the standard foam noodle.

Make your own. Buy 3 regular $4.95 foam noodles and a $5 pack of zip ties. Zip tie the noodles together and voila; your own super-noodle for under $20. Woo hoo and whack-a-doo... maybe even start your own company... super deal for you For Less by Les!!!!!!

Default ...... hoo-hahs!

Yes...... well..... you know from last summer, I made a single noodle by combining two of the $4.95 large size foam noodles together, using five lengths of black 1" fusion tape which uses no adhesive, fuses together with pressure, and is very waterproof and very long lasting. These two noodles, a green and a blue, are still together to this day and happily looking forward to ice-out.

This twin powered noodle is more like an exercise, workout seat than a swimming aid because it has so much buoyancy and creates a comfy flat sitting surface. Sitting on it in the lake, one can do different abdominal exercises like high vees, over the rainbows, leg crunches, and hoo-hahs .... while holding the 42" end lengths for stability ..... an in-the-water AB workout platform ...... hoo-hah!!

Will go look for a good descriptive link to this new noodle. At $25 as opposed to $4.95, it is different, as you would expect. It looks to have more buoyancy because it's a little bigger .... and is very brite blue.

.....yes, looks just like that. Better run down there in this icy, slippery snow storm, and grab one today ... since there was only three there?

Don't encourage him, If he discovers inflatables it will be all over but the crying.

Ok, it’s snowing pretty hard so why not...

How many of these noodles would be required to build a copy of Thor Heyerdahl‘s Kon-Tiki?
