Key Log Rolling

I met the Sisters Hoeschler at Outdoor Retailer this summer, and after a few minutes of chatting about their company, Key Log, we realized we had a laundry list of common friends from the northern regions of Vermont. Small world, I suppose. In any case, Abby, Lizzie and the rest of the Hoeschler family are all log rolling champions (amazing) and have developed a lighter, more portable synthetic log rolling log that you can use to spar while out on the water. I've never set foot on a log to do something like this, but after watching the video above, it sure does make you wanna try. Maybe.

    my friend Tad Beck is an artist from Maine who lives in LA, and one of his earlier works is this amazing log rolling video installation.

    If I may (and I may be suffering from fatigue of your election), not everything is “the great American” whatever. (The sister in the video calls it a great American sport.) In the 19th century, here in Canada, huge log drives went right by our parliament buildings on the Ottawa River and on out to the St. Lawrence River and thence to the Atlantic. In my youth, in Algonquin Park, we would play endless “King of the Log.”

    Still, I wish them well in their endeavour.
