Out of town paddler looking for a trip this weekend
My name is Chris Donovan. I'm a kayaker from near Chicago. I found out that I will be driving to Fairhope the weekend of April 1st (arriving Thursday night, March 31st) with my wife and I am looking for some suggestions for day trips. I'm planning on paddling Friday, Saturday and Sunday (the 1st-3rd). I'm looking for trips anywhere from 10 to 15 miles long or 6 to 8 hours long. I'd classify myself as an intermediate paddler and I am used to paddling solo or with groups. I'm bringing my own gear, an NDK Explorer, PFD, paddles, VHF, GPS, etc. I plan on purchasing charts as soon as I determine what day trips are good candidates. If you can help me out or point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.
I was hoping to get at least one day of open-water padding and one day in the rivers, lakes, and creeks. The third day I'd just leave for whatever comes up.
Please contact me by email, if you are interested in paddling with me.
