The Long Weekend: An Alpine Kayak Excursion

This video was produced in partnership with Micheline and the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® tire. With a projected 85,000-mile tread life and a 70,000-mile warranty, the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® tire is the perfect tire for any long weekend adventure.

If you haven’t checked out what a near-perfect four-day weekend looks like, here’s the playbook.

When you have the right truck for adventure, there’s no limit to the adventures you can have. Biking? Check. Hiking? Done. Fly fishing? Pictures of the fish as proof. But kayaking for a crew of four? That’s where the foldable boats come in. And that’s how you spend a Sunday in the shadow of the Eastern Sierra Nevada, meandering through the alpine tall grass and around lakes that link the mountains to the high prairie. With a few hundred miles to cover before work begins tomorrow, should you maybe be on the road by now? That’s what night time — and your three co-pilots — are for.
