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)

I have a Perception Sport Swifty 9'5'' recreational kayak.

Where are your favorite places to paddle?

Raccoon Creek, Little Beaver Creek, Beaver River, Ohio River - but I'd love to paddle anywhere!

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

I would be interested in all of the above, but I am most familiar with day trips. I would like to do more paddling in moving water - rivers, creeks, and streams.

What other outdoor activities do you enjoy?

Through participating with my Venture Crew, I have come to enjoy everything having to do with the outdoors - canoeing, kayaking, hiking, camping (tents or pitching ponchos), and snowshoeing. I love learning new skills and meeting new people.


I am originally from the Pittsburgh area, but I just graduated from West Chester University with a Music Education degree. I started paddling (canoeing) with my Boy Scout venture crew, Canoe Trails, about nine years ago. I am fairly new to kayaking.
