What new place do you want to paddle in this year?

Always new areas of the Sound, Rivers and points north.

What is your favorite place to paddle here in the NW?

There are few places I don't love paddling in the Northwest - from urban to wilderness. Anywhere in Washington, BC, and Alaska. I'm not real fond of suburban paddling though.

What is your sea kayaking experience level (beginner, intermediate, expert)?

High intermediate. I can roll, I love to surf, and I'm pretty good at planning trips and navigation. But I hope to never be considered an "expert". That sounds way to stressful, and kayaking is my antidote to stress. :-)

Where are some of the places you have been kayaking?

All over the Puget Sound, San Juans, many of our local rivers & lakes, Canadian Gulf, Broughton Islands, Barklay Sound, Makah Bay, and lots of places in SE Alaska.


Paddling is one of my favorite things. I love paddling with the Meetup group because of the great and diverse people I meet. I lead some of the Meetups, and especially love exploring new areas and multi-day camping trips.

What Phyllis is saying about this Meetup Group

How to get out on lots and lots of kayak trips.
