Looking to hike more regularly and perhaps get into some more strenuous and longer hikes. Potentially into trail maintenance if I have time. But mostly looking to enjoy the outdoors, see different places in the US and meet new people.
I'm a PhD Student at American University in DC (Anthropology). I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland. Love to get out of DC and go hiking in the surrounding areas, but don't do it nearly enough! Also into music, playing ukulele, baking, and filmmaking.
Welcome to Washington Kayak Club. Every PhD student needs some outdoor diversions. We often launch from places where you can rent a kayak. Let us know how we can help you. You may want to consider building a traditional Greenland kayak someday. Some of our members have done so, using nothing except the materials and methods the inuits possessed (no sealskins available today, however). Julian, in our group, is an example.
