What new place do you want to paddle in this year?

ANYPLACE that promises adventure! Rivers, lakes, Puget Sound, San Juans. I would love to put in at Hobuck Beach and camp at Shi-Shi Beach, but that may be a few years, and a good deal more experience, down the river.

What is your favorite place to paddle here in the NW?

So far, San Juan Islands, Columbia River.

What is your sea kayaking experience level (beginner, intermediate, expert)?

Beginner/intermediate. I can keep a moderate pace for quite some time, and have been dabbling with self- and assisted- rescue. Much more practice needed.

Where are some of the places you have been kayaking?

Sucia/Matia/Patos islands from Orcas Island; Cypress Island circumnavigation from Anacortes; Skagit Bay; Columbia River; Lake Union; Oahu, etc.


I love water. Almost any kind. And love kayaking, backpacking, snowboarding, beachcombing, and general outdoor time. Looking to become a better kayaker, and join others who also love to adventure.
