Can you paddle 8 miles? Our paddles are usually 7 - 8 miles long. Please confirm that you are a strong paddler who has a great deal of experience kayaking. Our paddles try to provide aerobic exercise, so we paddle at a good clip and do not stop

I can paddle 8 miles (when current and wind are not against me), but I'll be happy with less. I prefer to paddle 2 - 2 1/2 hours. I practice once a year flipping and getting back into my boat using a paddle float & a strap with a "step" I started kayaking many years ago and kayak twice a week, all year round.

We only stop once during a paddle, at the mid-point of the paddle, so you need to be able to and want to paddle 3 - 4 miles at a good clip, without taking a break. Please confirm that that is what you can do.

I can.

Do you plan to bring a dog on our walks? You are VERY welcome to walk with us without a dog. And you can bring guests on walks (but not on paddles).

Neither of my two German Shepherds will be walking with us this[masked] season : (

You must read the Accident Waiver of Liability that is on the Home Page before completing your request to join this group. Have you read the Accident Waiver and Release of Liability? Do you agree to it ?

I read it and I agree

If you are a "no show" twice, you will be automatically dropped from the group. You must apply as an individual. To kayak with us, you must be able to get back into your boat, if you capsize. I practice one day a year & it gets harder every year.

Each October, I schedule a class in Florida for my other group, in which we practice the T-recovery and also re-entering our boats unassisted.

Introduction

I love kayaking, birding, walking & gardening...and my dogs...or just sitting on the deck, enjoying the birds and watching weeds grow in my garden. I volunteer at Wild Care (wildlife rehabilitation). Would really like to paddle 3 times a week.

What Joyce is saying about this Meetup Group

We are about to wrap up our 2013-2014 season and even though I am sad to see our activities end, it is great to be able to look forward to our kayaking and walking next spring. The people who paddled & walked were absolutely delightful...fun, friendly, high energy people who warmly welcomed new folks into the group. I was happy to have been able to paddle a couple of times every week.....and enjoyed the weekly walks, even though RSVPs for walks were limited. So, thank-you for coming on about 65 paddles and walks since May 4. I really look forward to being with you on the water and on the trail next year. Hopefully, lots of people will be able to make the end of season party in Falmouth on October 2.....and maybe you will arrange to paddle or walk together after I head south. You can always reach me, or each other, because I am going to leave the site active. In April, I'll start putting paddles/walks on the calendar for May. Have a good winter. See you in May, Joyce
