I'm an experienced expedition sea kayaker from Pittsburgh and Buffalo. I enjoy Greenland style rolling and kayak surfing. I also stay fit bicycling, hiking and snowshoeing.

Tell us about yourself and your sea paddling experience including wet exit experience with a sea skirt.

I have a dependable hands and paddle rolls, so I don't typically wet exit.

While we welcome beginner kayakers and want to encourage those seeking sea kayaking learning events and experiences are you OK with being being excluded from events (for safety) based on your beginner status?

I'm not a beginner

Describe your sea kayaing gear including whether you have access to a boat. Include PFD, spray skirt, wet suit and any other gear you will bring and use for outings.

I have all the gear including 3 fiberglass sea kayaks

Have you paddled on Lake Erie? If so, where and how far? There is no wrong answer to this question.

Many time, including surfing big waves.

Is your profile picture an identifiable head shot of YOU and ONLY you? If not, you will be declined.

    Hi Dan! Welcome to the Hiking Club of Raccoon Creek State Park! The club meets each month to hike, meet new people, and enjoy the outdoors.

We hope you enjoy the hikes we have planned and look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions, please let us know or for more info on the hikes and other great programs the park has to offer, check out the Events tab on the RCSP Facebook page.

    Hi Dan. Nice kayak photo! Clearly you're at home on land and at sea.

    Would have liked to do this if I had advance notice -- I can take one random half day off per week and could load my boat in the morning and leave at lunch. I'll watch for when and if you offer this outing again -- just bought a noseclip last weekend with the intention of learning to roll this summer. Bottoms up!

    Hey Dan, met you this summer on Lake Ontario in July on the PPP Thursday night. My wife and I, with the seayaks, paddle with you and the guy with the Hobie from Wilson creek into the Harbor and back. Seeing if you remembered us at all?

    Dan, great hiking with you on the North Side, even though you kicked my ass on the Rising Main steps! Hope to see you around.
