I need some help from my UK friends. I'd like to organise a canoe (perhaps called a kayak in the UK) float trip. In parts of the US, you can hire canoes (or kayaks) for the day. The hire company will then drive you to a part of the river, you float and arrive at the end where they collect you and take you back to your cars. It is great fun, and I was thinking about that yesterday. My question(s) are all around how I should google search it. For starters, I'm taking about using one of these: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1998-10-tema-canoe.jpg#/media/File:1998-10-tema-canoe.jpg

When you take your time and do something right, you are proud of your work, and when you present your results, you enunciate and pronounce the full word: application."

This is cool (even though Wired uses a weird ad page blocker thing, the tech is cool)

This would be a cool place to visit. Anyone know of the actual location of this Barclays?
