The purpose of this group is to create a large group of friends that love to get together for a weekend of awesome Arizona kayaking trips (http://www.meetup.com/arizona-kayaking-trips/) where we spend the day kayaking around the most pristene moutain pine top lakes, rivers and streams. At night we camp, grill out some good chow over hot coals and build a bonfire that makes for good centerpiece for discusssions on lifes latest, news, jokes and political satires.
In other words, we spend the night laughing and joking and completely forgetting about the hectic world of meetings, email and cell phones and just let go for a while. This group enjoys all types of outdoor adventures in Arizona, not just kayaking.
