Also you prepare your food; it is good to have your own

5. I am looking for cheap travel trips in Lake Baikal in order
to increase number of clients; you could order the trip of
any length (days)!
You always keep close to the shore when you paddle (you move
from the shore at a distance of 10 meters); if there would
be sudden wind - you must have enough time to drag the kayak
on the shore!
