How would you describe your kayaking experience? e.g. beginner (not been out yet to a few times), novice(been out more than a dozen times), kayak regularly (been out lots of times),been-there-done- that.(out in all conditions)

Very experienced in a variety of conditions. I know how to wet exit, self rescue and assist in rescue. I have a drysuit and kayak in the cold (I paddle Lake George every New Year's Day). I don't know how to roll but plan to learn at some point.

Do you own a kayak? If so, what kind?

Impex Assateague in Fiberglass (17' 10"), a Placid Boatworks Rapidfire Canoe and a Wilderness Systems Zephyr 16

Do you accept responsibility for your own safety while kayaking with the group? yes or no.

Absolutely

Are you aware of safety gear and how to use it? Please write briefly about a safety item that you use when you kayak and why you use it?

Safety First, Fun Second

What sort of kayaking are you hoping to do with this group? (and be creative here... locations, scheduling, distances/lengths of time, etc.)

I'm up for anything except for Class III whitewater and above

Introduction

I have paddled for several years and I'm always up for new paddling adventures
