I've been paddling for two years, primarily at Occoquan Reservoir, Mason Neck, the tidal Potomac, and Chestertown, MD. I consider myself an experienced and capable recreational paddler who enjoys a relaxed pace for up to 10 miles, and I often take a picnic along.
I own a Delta 15.5, Delta 12-10, and a Dagger Axiom 12
For me, it's all about having fun experiencing nature from the water and socializing outdoors. Although I appreciate whatever exercise kayaking provides, I believe biking is better for that. I like kayaking and biking because they give me a reason to go pretty places and have something to do when I get there.
My main interest is enjoying friendly group paddles at interesting and different locations. However, I'm always looking to learn from more experienced paddlers.
I'm enjoy kayaking as a means to get outdoors and have fun. Good people makes for great paddling...
This group is off to a great start because Chuck has an excellent vision for organizing fun recreational paddles and social time afterwards. That's how to build a successful meetup and a real community of friendly paddlers.
