How many years have you been paddling?

I started paddling kayaks about 1978, took 13 years off due to job/family and got back into paddling in 1999. I got my touring boat in 2002 and have been looking to paddle ocean/big lakes as well as doing a lot of white water when w/w is available.

What type or model kayak/canoe do you own?

Easy Rider Eskimo 17, blue-green over blue green, as well as 2 w/w boats, a phyrana 7.0 and microbat 240 (a creeker). An Allagash 15 glass canoe (stowe canoe co. ) fills in the gaps when a canoe is the best tool for the day.

What other outdoor sports do you enjoy?

Ski (downhill and x-country, looking to learn more b/c). hunt ( archery, muzzleloading, and modern firearms).

What formal or informal training have you had and what skills? ie Able to do wet exit and re-entry, can do eskimo roll, have taken kayak safety courses

I am basically a whitewater paddler who lucked into a touring boat and am in training to lead AMC touring trips. I am also on the board of the Merrimack Valley Paddlers. I love kayaking in all its forms.
