Do you own your own kayak, canoe, or sail boat?

Kayak and canoe

If you have a boat what type do you own?

Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 and an Old Town NEXT hybrid canoe

How would you rank your paddling or sailing experience beginner, intermediate, or advance?


What kind of boat trips interest you the most? (day trips, flat water lake trips, overnight camping, whitewater trips, touring trips, etc.)

It used to be all of the above but after the multiple surgeries due to being struck by lightning I sold my whitewater kayaks because my new titanium spine more or less has limited my mobility. This is why I will be limited to the flat water and mild river trips...I'm bummed about my limitations but at least life goes on after my ordeal so I cant complain and I cherish each and every day plus complaining never helps with the chronic pain anyway LOL :-)

What kind of bike do you own? What kind of bike trips are you interested in attending greenway, long distance rides, bike races, touring trips, or ?

Trek 7300 hybrid


I enjoy kayaking and backcountry camping so are you ready to meet some new friends for an outdoor adventure? Paddle on my friends :-) Sparky
