Started kayaking in 2013. Kayaked some larger lakes like Lake Raystown and Lake Nockamixon PA and regularly do Wednesday paddle at Nockamixon with a meetup group run by LL Bean from Center Valley PA. Have done some river Kayaking on minor rapids in Delaware river. Recently completed the inner trails of Jane Island State park during small craft advisories and 20 mph winds. Have had 4 kayaking courses from LL Bean Discovery school thru their Intermediate Recreation kayaking class and Rolling class and 3 classes from Rick Weibush in "Intensive Intermediate Skills", "Living on the Edge", and "Dealing with Winds & Currents" - but still need more practice to successfully do a roll. Looking forward to try rivers with Class I & II and also more challenging open water with small waves 1-3 feet

Many reasons : Enjoyment of nature and wildlife; Exercise and improvement of my fitness, coordination and balancing skills; challenge of adventure to become more aware of myself and improve myself.
Looking for new places to explore and see since we are from up north near Philadelphia. Take advantage of warmer conditions than more northern kayaking in the fall and spring. Always interested in socializing and meeting new people.
