I enjoy the outdoors and one of my recreational activities is kayaking.

Do you own a kayak or canoe?

Yes, 2 kayaks.

What kind of paddling have you done previously?

Mostly rivers and creeks.

What do you look for in this group

Sharing the same interests as mine. Doing several fun trips each year.

What type of paddling are you interested in? Kayaking, canoeing, day trips, overnighters, etc.

My kayak is short and wide which is one reason I prefer rivers with good current. I don't really care to paddle "up river". I like the narrower rivers with lots of bends and turns.

What JB is saying about this Meetup Group

Nice people, good times.

    Hi Jim. You're very welcome. I'm glad I was able to show you two around the Lagoons. It was fun to play "tour guide" for once and it was great company. Looking forward to more paddling with you too.

    I see you are doing the hike in Palos this Sunday and live in Palatine. I live in Buffalo Grove and was wondering if you're interested in carpooling?
