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)

Kayak at least once a week or more. Have kayaked on the Hudson River from Albany to Hudson, but not all at once. Have also kayaked on the Mohawk River and most lakes in southern Renessleaer County and northern Columbia County.

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

Wilderness Tsumani 125

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


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?

Life jacket which I wear at all time. Also have a paddle float and a water pump and can get back into kayak if it tips, and then pump out the water.

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

I am retired and my schedule is flexible, although I like kayaking best in the early morning or late afternoon. I would like to do trips of about 2-3 hours. Any location in the Capital District area is OK as I am looking for new places to kayak.


To meet other people who kayak, and to learn about good kayaking locations in the Capital District area.

What Ken O. is saying about this Meetup Group

It is more enjoyable to paddle with a group of people then by yourself. Everyone was very friendly.
