Back to the paddling topic, I enjoy the peace and scenery of the bayous, and I enjoy the flow and interesting features of rivers. I found that I am not a big fan of distance racing - paddling in the dark and in icy conditions in the Texas Winter 100 helped me form this opinion. I have enjoyed the limited sea kayaking I have done, but I think I'll stick with protected waters. I enjoy riffles and Class 1-3 rapids quite a bit, and I especially enjoy short "expedition" paddles in Big Bend and the Buffalo River in northern Arkansas.
You will find me in one of three boats:
a blue Liquid Logic Stinger XP
an old aqua (deck) and white (hull) Eddyline Calypso sea kayak
an orange Esquiff Nitro solo canoe
