I have always had an obsession with rivers, even as a child. I find it tranquil, yet it stirs my soul... I also enjoy hiking, biking, climbing, traveling, gardening, cooking, yoga, sewing, and all the arts.

I always wear a pfd with a whistle attached. Three years ago, as a new paddler, the first lesson I learned, was to NEVER gab hold of a stationary object (such as a tree branch) while the current is moving you along. You WILL no doubt, end up in the river. Also, navigate away from strainers where there is a current, because the current can pull your boat in and flip it.
Congratulations Kathy, you are lucky member #400!
Hi Kathy. I am not originally from here either but have lived here for 15 yrs and love it too. I am just checking out those who rsvp'd for the mall event just to make sure all attending are not young'uns. I am old enough to be an empty nester, have 2 that have flown, but still a 13 yr old at home : )
Kathy, you are my favourite candy lipsticked, pickled egg eating, pizza pie sharing, micro-brew tour-leading fellow West Michigan kayaker. "And, we'll have fun, fun, fun til your daddy takes the T-Bird away!"
Thanks for your interest Kathy. I am trying to find an access point to the Kent Trails somwhere around 44th in Wyoming, MI as I'd like to meet before the bike ride at the Nutrition-N-More club house located on Breton and 44th. If you have any suggestions, send them my way!
Hi Kathy, no worries! The Weston A. Price Foundation is the parent organization for our local chapter. It is dedicated to educating consumers about nutrient dense foods and connecting farmers with consumers. The cookbook that is the main reference is called Nourishing Traditions and I highly recommed it. Make sure you get a new member folder at the next presentation night and pick up some of the brochures. If it helps you feel better I am constantly learning as well!
Hi Kathy, our put ins are quite well marked. Check the maps. If you have a question about a specific kayaking meetup let me know!
