Why are you interested in this Meetup?

I enjoy the outdoors (water, especially) and enjoy experiencing new things with others. I have a regular paddling buddy (Jenny Scala). Being networked with a group of like-minded people will expand the possibilities to enjoy local--and other--beautiful places.

What skill level are you? It really makes no difference if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced kayaker. We ask so we can better plan our trips.

Intermediate. I've rolled in open ocean and surf; comfortable with self- and partner rescues; comfortable launching and landing in moderate surf; no rock gardening yet. Comfortable navigating, though only a few times navigating by compass in the fog. Little night kayaking experience (have a deck strobe, in case). Have safety/towing/signaling/radio equipment/camping gear.

This is YOUR group! Tell me what you'd like to gain from being a member. Would you be willing to suggest and host paddles?

See "Why are you interested...?"

Do you own your own boat? If so, is it a sit on top or closed deck?

Yes. Closed deck touring (Wilderness Systems Zephyr 160)

Please read the waiver in the "More / Files" section.

Done. Agreed.

Introduction

What John M. is saying about this Meetup Group

The idea of a meetup group is terrific, and the people I've met have been friendly, inclusive and like-minded about loving the water and wildlife.
