Always new areas of the Sound, Rivers and points north.
There are few places I don't love paddling in the Northwest - from urban to wilderness. Anywhere in Washington, BC, and Alaska. I'm not real fond of suburban paddling though.
High intermediate. I can roll, I love to surf, and I'm pretty good at planning trips and navigation. But I hope to never be considered an "expert". That sounds way to stressful, and kayaking is my antidote to stress. :-)
All over the Puget Sound, San Juans, many of our local rivers & lakes, Canadian Gulf, Broughton Islands, Barklay Sound, Makah Bay, and lots of places in SE Alaska.
Paddling is one of my favorite things. I love paddling with the Meetup group because of the great and diverse people I meet. I lead some of the Meetups, and especially love exploring new areas and multi-day camping trips.
How to get out on lots and lots of kayak trips.
