Ditto.Maybe kayak a whole shit ton more. If you kayak all the time and you are never home then you can say to your wife, "Let's get a raft so we can be on the river together". If she really wants to be with you then the idea will sound great to her.
Take her kayaking and get her in over her head. Then say, "You know, rafting is a whole lot mellower. Maybe we should get a raft and do some desert floats."
I used a combo of these 2 methods and it worked great.
We both kayaked, then we got a labrador, convinced her that the raft was for the dog....also don't forget that she can sip box chardonnay while sight seeing and camping in the best Colorado and the West has to offer....I've been kayaking for awhile and I am now looking at adding a raft to the fleet. However, I am hitting a little hickup and having trouble convincing the wife. How did you pull it off? Any advice for me?
TrittoWhatever it is, don't try to teach her yourself.
Perfect reply. Talk to her and be honest, playing games is lame. Discuss the possibilities.What are you really wanting from her?
If your wanted a pretty boat ornament...i mean who doesn't right. That just takes some clever bargaining or Do you want a CO-pilot that can take a raft down a few rapids while your fishing off the deck.
