Where Have you enjoyed your kayaking?

I will only name my favorites in order: Ausable River Oscoda Michigan; Holston River Elizabethton TN; Otter Creek (longest waterway in Vermont); Lake Champlain VT

Where would you like to kayak?

Not sure. New to the area. Local rivers and the Ocean. Maybe where the river joins the ocean.

What type of kayak do own?

I have 4 but could use two more. I do not have a really high end touring kayak and I do not have a white water boat. My first boat was a silly 8.5ft wave runner which is really only good for children playing with at the beach. Then I bought a 14.5ft sit-in ocean kayak (while they were still making them) which was great on Lake Champlain with its open water and huge waves. I then purchased an old 12.5ft used tandem (functions much better as a single with a nice space for my dog) that was great on paddling up (and down) a strong current flat water river like the Ausable in MI; and finally I purchased a short (10ft) pungo that tracks more like a 12 footer. I needed something that I could just through in or on my car and that I could store INSIDE my apartment while completing my internship in Charlottesville and living in apartment buildings for a few years, before I bought a house in TN.

Introduction

I own four boats of various levels and am looking forward to discovering local waterways.I just moved back to the area. I lived in Vermont for 30 years and then TN. I am sure this area offers a lot and I am looking forward to meeting fellow kayakers
