My name is Graham and I recently got involved with kayaking though the overlapping interests of the people in my hiking group. I am interested in getting involved with more organized kayaking trips as well as picking up any new info about the sport.
I really get a kick out of how quiet it can be out on the water. My initial fear of not being able to control the boat was easily overcome and I really enjoy that I am not making a big impact on the environment with my presence.
I first started kayaking in 2011 and I have only been on a handful of trips. I am a beginner to say the least and I do not own a boat.
I learned about the Fox Valley Yakkers through cursory searches on meetup. What caused my to join the group was after having met several other members through my hiking group and hearing about what a great group it is. It only seemed like a natural progression to join the group after a realized that kayaking is something I would like to do more of in the future.
I just wanted to personally welcome you to the group. many of my members are new to kayaking. We all learn from each other here. I started this group with other like yourself. My main goal was to give others the chance to experience kayaking and to see if they find the same joy I find. If you have any questions feel free to email me or any other member. You will find we are all eager to share our knowledge to help other to share in the passion for kayaking. I look forward to meeting in person.
I plan on going and have a truck if u want to take extra gear.. let me know.. txt or call [masked]

Hi Graham, Glad you can go to the meetup! I just hope it's not raining by then! I would like to carpool if we can, we could take my car too (satellite radio included - the NPR station is programmed in!). Let me know. I have the day off on Friday, so can go anytime that afternoon. -Rachel
