Hometown: Lynn, MA

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
Not sure. New to the area. Local rivers and the Ocean. Maybe where the river joins the ocean.
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.
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
5 STARS! Great time today and really nice to see some familiar faces and to meet some wonderful new folks. Looking forward to getting together again.
