What kind of kayak(s) do you have, if any? Feel free to answer generally (recreational, touring, sea kayak, etc.) or specifically (color, length, make, model)

A Perception, 9' long, very stable, but kind of slow in the water- ;-(, less than 40 lbs, good for me to be able to lift. It's green! And I love it!

Where are your favorite places to paddle?

Flat water anywhere. Moraine's convenient, I like beautiful water. Glade Run is close. Love to do streams, though not big white water, it's a problem getting back where I started... Have ocean kayaked, will kayak most anywhere I can find a boat.

What kind of trips are you most interested in? (Easy, relaxed, fitness-paced, adventurous, social, urban, challenging, overnight camping, ??)

Prefer country to urban, like to watch the wildlife. Easy, relaxed, peaceful. That said, if the river is the only choice I'm in. Not up for challenging (well, maybe the mind is but not the body). Not the time for overnight camping right now.

What other outdoor activities do you enjoy?

Hiking, fishing ('cause it's on the water), gardening - anything that gets me outside.
