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 just bought my first kayak, however I took lessons my first time out about ten years ago. I have gone a few times a year, from rivers, lakes, and white water. I am excited to get more experience and do allot of kayaking this year.

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

I own a kayak, it is a Field & Stream 12 foot long kayak.

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?

yes, I use a life jacket just in case anything were to happen to me I would stay above 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'm not sure of the exact trips this group does. I hike with Bud and he recommend I join this group. I am interested in lots of different trips. I am interested in spotting some cars miles up river. I'm interested in some kayak camping trips, I would love to kayak out to an island on a lake and camp out or do some cooking on a fire. I hike allot and am excited to explore the areas I will now be able to with my kayak.


I love everything outdoors. I just recently got a kayak and would love to get out and meet new people.
