I like being outdoors in the summer months. Kayaking started out for me as an exercise activity to complement bicycling but now has almost completely taken over my free time. Getting out on the water at first light is just hard to beat.

What types of water do you like to paddle? (flatwater, rivers, open water, whitewater, etc)

Flatwater, Rivers, Whitewater and Open Water

What skill level are you? (beginner, intermediate, advanced)


Do you own your own boat(s), and if so what types?

Tsunami 140, Remix XP10

When are you normally free to paddle?

It depends on my work schedule. Normally I'm flexible.

    Mike, we don't "bike" but we do kayak, if you ever need a launch location from our River House..plenty of parking...walk across the front lawn, and down the pebbled beach (low tide) into the Delaware...[mas­ked]

    I am planning to have a team of kayakers in next years Tour de Cure. Any interest in riding on that team? If so, would you care to ride with me on Team Red this year? Registration for the tour is $1.00 but you would need to collect money for ride: $200.00 If interested, go to Tour de Cure, register for Team Red, and let them know I referred you.
    Looking forward to seeing you on the water. Larry

    Actually scratch that last post. You actually save me mucho $$. Based on the way you explained how you end up with the finished map... I was able to achieve the task for free with my current equipment. I downloaded EazyGPS (which is freeware). Now I can download tracks from my Garmin Rino 120 into EazyGPS; save as a .gpx then open with Google Earth... I have been trying to get this to work for months. I finally got it. TY TY TY. :-)

    Greetings Mike...
    I just saw that sweet map from Great Bay & Fish Factory and it appears I have the same question as Sheldon. I am looking to replace a gps that doean't allow me to download data to my computer. Is your gps is producing these maps? If so I would like to know which one you use, if you don't mind. Thanks.

    Thanks for the info. Somehow I did not think this would be a short answer.
