I've been with this group for several years and picked up a lot of experience along the way. Have a couple of week long expeditions under my belt and a lot of safety training. Own two kayaks, one a Pygmy Osprey which I put together myself.
San Juan islands, especially launching from Washington Park to avoid taking ferries.
I consider myself 'intermediate', though I have done surf classes, advanced paddle strokes classes, tidal rapids training and other classes with Bob Burnett and George Gronseth. I've also done several multi-day trips.
The Cornish coast was my first trip. I've also been to the Sea of Cortez, the Big island of Hawaii on a multi-sport trip, the San Juan islands, the Gulf Islands and Sitka Sound, Alaska.
The group has a variety of organizers who plan trips for new paddlers as well as experienced paddlers who are up for a challenge. Saul has extra boats and equipment so that newcomers can join us on some of the beginner level paddles. For all these trips I recommend people take classes, learn safety skills, acquire the necessary equipment and bring a kayak that they are used to paddling - I think Saul has sent multiple messages stressing the safety skills requirement.
Martin - thank you so much for a great meeting and group. I learned so much. And such yummy food. Hope to be able to attend as many meetings as possible. Thanks so much - Patti
Hi Martin, if you are a patient person and just want to get out and do some dancing, please let me know. I haven't been dancing in about a year now, and sure do miss it. Do you do any East Coast or West Coast Swing?
Hey Martin...What do you think for our brunch. I thought breakfast buritos might work out well. I could bring eggs, flour tortillas....if we needed a non egg option we could use black beans Carol and keith could bring the fixxins for the burritos....you could bring fruit or something like that....Just an idea...trying to help...Im open to anything. I will connect with keith and Carol and make sure they have their assignment.....let me know what you think.....Thanks...Marcia
