What's your canoeing experience?

I've been on a few Fort Bragg rivers, Lake Chabot, one boat-in, Newark Slough, Alviso Slough, Lake Mendocino, and San Leandro Bay/Alameda Estuary and that's about it.

What's the make/model of your canoe? If you don't have one, you must post a discussion thread within 1 week to solicit a partner.

Old Town Camper.

What do you like about canoeing?

Wildlife and views. I also like boat-in because I can camp in remote areas. I also like that it's an activity that the entire family can do together. Also forces me to work on good communication with hubby. ;) I don't think I'd be in to portage: the idea of carry a canoe doesn't interest me. I'd be "down" with leaving the canoe tied to a tree, then backpacking in to camp. For now, because of the baby, easy canoeing will have to suffice.

Would you like to organize an outing?

Yes. I'd like to meet other canoeing parents with kids.

What's your experience with tides? If none, read "General info: Paddling tidal rivers and sloughs" on group's website.

I know a little but, but could sure use more experience. I prefer lake canoeing for the simplicity, but marshes for the bird watching.


I'm a very, very beginner when it comes to canoeing (need to work on my technique and learn other maneuvers). Husband does most of the work. ;) But, if I didn't canoe with baby in tow I'd enjoy some fast/whitewater river canoeing.

What Angela is saying about this Meetup Group

I'm excited that the membership keeps growing. Canoeing the sloughs is great fun, and some of the lakes too.
