Yes, I have a PFD with a very loud whistle in case I wander off the water trail.
I've been flatwater kayaking since 2006 - roughly once a week in warm weather. I've enjoyed numerous day paddles all around MD, a couple kayak camping trips in the Outer Banks and on the Potomac River, and also several canoe camping trips, including a 6-day backcountry canoe trip in Canada in 2014.

All of the above. I love anything in or on the water. Sitting in a boat is much more fun to me than hauling a backpack along a trail. The scenery's better and you can see a lot more of it. Kayaking just feels good, too - it's kind of like wet yoga, so I can paddle all day and not be sore. I also like camping, and there's so many lovely places to camp along the water. However, I'm not wild about cold-weather paddling, so you'll see me when it warms up again.
I'm excited about meeting new friends to have fun and experienced company for these adventures. Always have a buddy with you! This group's members sound like they actually are buddies, which is nice. I also want to learn how to navigate on the water and find put-ins/take-outs for great paddling trips.
Hi, I enjoy the trips with CKA's friendly paddlers to share great places around Maryland for kayak camping or day paddling.
Fun group and happy to share everything - food, experience, boat talk, etc.
