I split my time between Reno and upstate NY, gradually spending more time out West. I have a medical device company.

What is your experience level with wines? (e.g. I am just starting out; I enjoy wine with most dinners; I am very familiar with most varietals and know their typical characteristics; I am an expert with a large wine cellar)

Modestly experienced. I drink great wines, typically Australia's top reds.

What is your experience with eating gourmet foods? (e.g. I have not had much experience; I enjoy it when available; I eat at the French Laundry every chance that I get)

Over the years I've had the opportunity to indulge, too often it seems, almost hedonistically.

How familiar are you with wine paring? (e.g. I don't drink wine with a meal; I don't pair I just open the closest bottle; I put thought into what wine will go with the meal; my cellar allows me to pick the perfect wine for every meal)

I pair red with everything. It's like wearing black to a New Yorker, which incidentally I proudly am not.

What is you experience with cooking gourmet dinners? (e.g. I have no experience; I have limited experience but want to give it a try; I cook as often as possible)

I can cook well. Gourmet…previously left it to the chef.

Are you a potential host of a gourmet food and fine wine dinner? (e.g. no thanks I just want to participate in the dinners; I might be willing to give it a try; I love to cook and plan on hosting events)

I could host. I keep a small condo in Reno, not too suitable, but there is a conference room available in the building. Might have access to a house occasionally.

    Yes, I had a wonderful week but only scratched the surface with what is available for Kayakers. I stayed in Ogunquit and Kayaked the tidal river that runs behind the dunes/beaches. It was my first test with strong tidal current in my new boat. There are SO many awesome places and opportunities up there I can't wait to get back. The AMC has some great spots in their guidebook, there are lots of choices between calm inland waterways or coastal harbor to harbor trips. Enjoy!
