Change From Fresh to Salt – South Florida


No recent posts as busy changing everything from work to residence.  Not a snow bird but a year round change to a warmer climate which allows more Paddling and biking.  Lost 6 lbs since the change, not due to any diet, in fact beer consumption is up.  Tan lines are also staying.  Just connected with […]

SUP To Hell and Back


I have not blogged in a long time, just busy with other activities, not enough time or to be honest the drive to sit down and blog after doing all the other stuff I have been doing for the last year.  I’m trying to get ready for a major move South for more warm weather […]

First Ever Huron River Chain SUP Trip


Not sure if anyone else has done this or not, however I think it might be the first ever SUP trip taken down the Huron River in Southeast Michigan.  Stand Up Paddle boards are still new to the Midwest. We traveled from Huron Meadows Metro Park  (a beautiful under utilized park on the Huron River) to […]

The Kayak Coffin Arrives


It’s been a long time since I blogged, my apologies, just been too busy with other activities. The P&H Kayak that I demo’ed back on July 19th then had it sold from under me because I waited till the next morning and was subsequently talked into ordering (not a very hard sell) was finally delivered […]

Greenland Kayak Training Camp 2012


It was my second year being lucky enough to get in on the Qajaq USA event (Qajaq is pronounced kayak for non Greenlanders). Visit the Qajaq TC site  for more info and more photos of the event. The Training Camp long weekend is restricted by total number due to the limited facilities at Camp Lookout , […]

Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium 2012 – Grand Marais Mi


I attended the 28th annual GLSKS held in the Upper Peninsular of Michigan in the small quaint picturesque town of Grand Marias on the shores of Lake Superior. This was my second time at the symposium and I enjoyed it as much if not more than last year.  I camped in the municipal campground just […]

Tybee Island GA Kayaking


This is part two of theCumberland and Tybee Island Sea Kayak trip.  This blog is about the Tybee Island experience, the blog is a little late since I was very busy with home and work items after returning from vacation.  It did not help that I was sent to Upstate NY for work for a […]

Cumberland Island Sea Kayak Adventure


I was invited in December to join a Sea Kayak trip to Cumberland Island Georgia and then on to Tybee Island Georgia.  But I did not respond to the invite until January when I was able to roll my P & H Capella reliably in January pool sessions.  Paddling out on the Atlantic and in […]

Easter Weekend Paddling The Huron River Chain


The water level now raised by the Portage Lake dam the State Boat Launch is open again.  More power boats are venturing out onto the waterway, but still a very quiet and peaceful time to paddle the chain. Spring time foliage is getting going with trees blooming along the river. I paddled for two hours […]

March Madness – Kayaking


Well it is early March and in Southeast Michigan and the lakes are open, the air warm 65 to 70 degrees and tempting for a paddle (Global Warming anyone?).  I took advantage and got my sea kayak into the water.   I upset lots of the waterfowl who thought they had the lake to themselves.  The […]
