Oh, I am so jealous. When I was kayaking on a regular basis, I generally went up the channel from Scappoose Bay or out on the Columbia if I had a partner. With Hubby so sick, I haven't been out too much. I need to just go.

No, I've never done the Clackamas River. I've done the Willamette, including the locks at Oregon City, which was a fascinating experience.

It's a while since I've kayaked in OR - mostly in Hawaii and Fiji, where the water's warm and clear :)

Now I am going to have to get off my backside and get the kayak out. Have you been down the Clackamas? It is a lot of fun. It has been almost 20 years since I kayaked down it. Did raft it about 10 years ago.

I'd be up for an occasional kayak trip. I live in Portland and have done some kayaking - mostly ocean kayaking but some river kayaking as well.

Send me a spark mail if/when you're planning something and need a partner and would like to talk.

I have got to get it out at least once this year. I miss it so much, but now that I have no one to kayak with, hubby goes all paranoid on me. He doesn't trust me by myself in the river. Really, I would not go in the river without a partner.

Thanks Cathy.

I've had several inquiries already and truthfully answered questions.

when i get down about 40 more pounds I intend to do some kayaking. It's always been a dream of mine.

Momentarily I love this sport it's so fun and helping in my weight loss program.

It's off season right now but january we start pool practice with makeshift boat seats at the pool of the WWCA

Wish I did not live so far and my health was more stable. I had two friends who paddled. It sounds like so much fun. Can you tell us how much it costs and how long the practice sessions are? It might help encourage more people.

If you live within Driving distance of the Waterfront in Portland or to take a bus we would be ahppy to ahve you recruit to apddle on my team as we are low on paddlers. they have moved on to other things. It's a great all over body workout.

I travel to OPortland from Oregon City to paddle twice a week and then there are the races. It's so exciting at the races in Saloem, San Francisco, Olympia, Kent and Tacoma.

PDF life vests & paddles are provided.




If interested send me a Spark mail.
