Hi! I'm a native Jacksonvilleian but have only taken up kayaking over the last couple of years. My husband, Bob Brunson, and I are members of the Seminole Canoe and Kayak Club and most, but not all, of our outings have been with them.
I have a 10'5" Wilderness kayak that I can carry on racks or, in a pitch, in my minivan!l! My husband and I also have 2 17' long canoes that we paddle sometimes.
I would say that I'm an intermediate paddler on calm water...rivers, lakes, springs, etc. no whitewater, but I would like to get some experience using a spray skirt on a crossing like over to Cumberland Island from Amelia Island.
Very congenial group of people...everyone was friendly and helpful-even though some of us had never met each other...I really like the types of people kayaking seems to attract....
Crystal River trip I tried to sent a note by responding to yours. didn't work -
alot closer than to us here at Jax! if you mapquest it, it says 1 hr 30 minutes, about 65 miles. I have no idea how that works out, should only be about an hour! I will post my cell phone number, and we don't leave until everyone one is there. If you have any problems please call. It's a 3 hour ride for us, so if you get there before us, please be patient. my cell is [masked]
