What types of water do you like to paddle? (flatwater, rivers, open water, whitewater, etc)

Since I go solo- lakes, ponds, reservoirs, slow-moving creeks/rivers where I don't need a shuttle. I've had fun on faster water & would do more w/transport- but I'm happy gliding in the middle of nowhere, exploring /absorbing the scenery & wildlife.

What skill level are you? (beginner, intermediate, advanced) Please be honest, this is for the entire groups safety.

beginner - I guess, since I have almost no experience w/ whitewater of any level. But I have a fair amount of flatwater experience - know how to maneuver my boat, read water, deal with obstacles, wind, choppy water ect.

In order to be considered for membership you must own your own kayak and be able to transport it. Do you and what kind do you have?

I have an Advanced Elements, AdvancedFrame kayak.

When are you normally free to paddle?

Weekends, whenever. When days are longer late afternoon & early evenings. I love night paddling as well.

Introduction

I bought a kayak this summer & have been obsessively going on excursions since. I haven't done whitewater & am interested...but nature rather then adrenaline is (currently) my primary incentive, so I love flatwater paddling for it's own experience.
