Introduction

Hello all! I enjoy kayaking - love the water. Anything outdoors including hiking, camping other social/fitness type events.

A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?

I have a pfd.

Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.

Novice. Basic level classes with REI. Paddling and one class of wet exit without a roll.

What kind or type of kayak(s) do you own? If you'll be renting or borrowing from a friend that's okay too. We also have rental kayaks for members to use.

No kayak. Have only rented here and again in the DC areas. Looking into a purchase.

Why do you kayak? Some people paddle to relax and get away from it all outdoors, others to stay fit. The real crazies paddle just for the joy and fun of it. What's your reason?

All the above. I motto is to keep moving.

What do you hope to get out of joining this group? Some people want to improve their paddling skills others just want to socialize with fellow paddlers. Is there anything special you're looking for?

Skill, meditation, social.

    Hi Cindy, Glad we got in touch today. I was reviewing the hiking gear rec'd for winter hikes. It says that stabilicers are required in case we come across ice (they slip onto the bottom of your shoe). If you don't have them you should be able to get them at an outdoor store. Or send a message to the hike leader - she said they have spares available to hikers on a first com first serve basis. I'd send her a message to reserve a pair. Thought I would mention it. Look forward to meeting you

    Hi Cindy,

    It's too late to call you now. I will try calling you from work. If not then when I get home around 8:30.
    Thanks! Tanya

    Cindy,
    I just posted this on the message board and then I thought to send you a greeting. Thank you for your offer. I could get to Greenbelt Metro. I would need to know what time you would need me to be there, I checked the train schedule and I could get there by 7:47, that's the earliest train. I definitely want to do the complete hike. Would that work out? My email address is [masked], Thanks. Tanya
