What are your favorite outdoor activities?

calm kayaking, camping, slow paced hiking, easy bike rides, excursions into nature with knowledgeable leaders, exploring GA

Where is the coolest place you've been?

that's a difficult question, as I have favorite places for different reasons... 1st would be kayaking on a beautiful lake or lazy river... Or drinking good coffee overlooking rolling mountains. I love life and beautiful nature in lots of places

What's the most adventurous thing you've done?

Okefeenokee Swamp canoeing... those gators are REALLY BIG! What was I thinking!

Where is your favorite getaway spot?

N GA mountains and lakes...

How did you hear about Outdoor Club South?

ga conservancy and riverkeepers friends talked about what a good group of people participate


Enjoying outdoor adventures with family & good friends is my idea of the perfect way to spend time.I enjoy modest kayak adventures and peaceful camping trips with hiking, biking for the meek. At 59, I'm trying to squeeze in every bit of life possible

    There's a poor response plus I have not been able to find any one to car pool with. I think I would rather wait and do this trip in the spring, thus giving us more time to promote it. If it's during spring break, I will be a trip leader. Sounds like a great place.

    I would love to join you in the paddle events - but alas, I have never paddled or rowed a boat or kayaked successfully in my life! I think I paddled a canoe with someone else one time and couldn't get the hang of it, which meant we pretty much went in circles! I do love the water, however, and get close to, or in it, when I can!
