For many summers as a kid, I went to a canoe tripping camp in Algonquin Park which has marked me for life. I am always on the lookout for a camping/kayak experience, but now I mostly end up on day trips. I take my Walden Odyssey on an annual spring fling down the Mad River. I have also canoed the Winnoski River Sojourn and paddled my P&H Capella on the Lake Champlain Sojourn organized by Ruth Miller in 2009. I have done the Valcour overnight trip with the Champlain Kayak Club, as well many Lake Champlain and Maine day trips. Studied at a Sea Kayak symposium in Castine, the many symposiums put on by Todd Wright and Dovid Yogota on Lake Champlain, as well as Greenland rolling with Cheri Perry and Turner Wilson. This past May I went with the Kayak Club to Maine for 3 days of navigation and skill building with John Carmody and Todd Wright. I am now researching how to do a Lake Memphemagog end to end trip. I also have a Tiderace Exicte-s that I hope to roll this summer.
I am Dorothy Tod, live in Warren Vt and am interested in experiencing water--its stories, politics, its shaping force...and finding people to paddle with me.
