How would you describe your kayaking experience? e.g. beginner (not been out yet to a few times), novice(been out more than a dozen times), kayak regularly (been out lots of times),been-there-done- that.(out in all conditions)

I have been kayaking pretty regularly for the last six years. Although I prefer flat water, I've done some sea kayaking and a bit of whitewater.

Do you own a kayak? If so, what kind?

Yes, a 13-foot Necky Manitou.

Do you accept responsibility for your own safety while kayaking with the group? yes or no.

Yes.

Are you aware of safety gear and how to use it? Please write briefly about a safety item that you use when you kayak and why you use it?

Yes. I have/wear a PFD, and I'm a very responsible boater.

What sort of kayaking are you hoping to do with this group? (and be creative here... locations, scheduling, distances/lengths of time, etc.)

Short trips can be fun, but I also enjoy making a day of it--especially if I take some rests and have lunch/snacks with me. I have a few favorite spots (Spier Falls, Kunjamuk Creek, Cedar River Flow). I also like to check out new places.

Introduction

Hello. I first got in a kayak about six years ago; I bought one the very next day. Kayaking is a great way for me to relax and enjoy nature. I'd like to meet people who also want to get out on the water.
