     Just spectacular. As always a great group of people, old friends or should I say long-time friends and new... If you're looking for a place to paddle with others, this is a nice group of people with all levels of experience They kayak, yak, dance, laugh, have excellent adventure planning, camping. Wonderful group of people... ~ Iit just gets better!

     Aside from the chilly weather (30's at night and early am) It was a great time. Really enjoyed spending the weekend with Jim, Eric and Joyce among others!!! Relaxing and fun weekend to kick off the camping season for us!!! Hope to share more trips down the road!

  • FLOAT YOUR BOAT: Chicago Area Paddlers Meetup

     The people were friendly, and VERY HELPFUL, to those who were less experienced, I felt safe, and would recommend this meet up for all those who aren't all that experienced in Kayaking, people are really helpful and that alone makes the experience all that much more fun! I can't wait for next year already!!

  • FLOAT YOUR BOAT: Chicago Area Paddlers Meetup

     Great group, the hosts are very prepared to handle any situation and warm and friendly as well. Can't beat it! 

    Kim on Sep 4, 2010.

  • FLOAT YOUR BOAT: Chicago Area Paddlers Meetup

     If you want to kayak and meet new people, and feel a little scared to just show up, this is a great bunch. You don't have to be an ace paddler - you don't even need to own your own kayak. You just have to want to come out and play. You can rent a kayak and carrier very reasonably ($45-$55) from Chicago Canoe Base or REI Oakbrook - and both places give you 2 days for a one day rental. Just do it! You won't regret it. 

    Sherri on Aug 2, 2010.

  • FLOAT YOUR BOAT: Chicago Area Paddlers Meetup
