Do you agree to wear your life jacket on all meetup paddles? This must be answered affirmatively to be accepted in the HRK.

We ALWAYS wear PFD's, even in the heat of the summer.

How long have you been paddling?

Mostly since 2006 (I built a canvas on wood frame kayak in the 1960's, long since disintegrated).

What kind and size of kayak(s) do you Have?

12', 14' and 16' Wilderness Systems Tsunami's, 16' Necky Zoar, 17' Prijon Kodiak.

What types of paddle events are you hoping for from this organization?

Daytrips on weekends, maybe an overnight once in a while.

Do you know how to dress for paddling in cold weather?

We have drysuits, neoprene gloves, pogies, booties and hats, etc.


My wife Betsy and I purchased kayaks in 2006 and now go fairly regularly. We've been on multi-day trips a few times, so far only in the Adirondack Park in NY. I don't know why we have five kayaks and a canoe for just the two of us...
