Spring is upon us…but I feel like we didnt really have a winter here in the Hudson Valley. I’m really looking forward to gaining some paddling hours this year. I currently have a Wilderness System Tarpon 140. Ive paddled for only a few years but last year finally purchased this kayak used at a good price. After using it for the entire year last year…i fell in love!!! The beauty and peacefulness i’ve experienced on my new kayaking journey has been epic. New friends made and new locations discovered.
I’m going to list my 14ft’r for sale and buy the same kayak but in the 12 ft version. The 2 feet will make a big difference for me while loading and unloading solo! (and i’m a girl…LADY…so it is a challenge for me). I do think my leverage will be better. I"m also going to get a Hulavator…no reason for me to blow out my back and spoil the season,right??
So just wanted to do an intro…and if theres anyone near…speak up. I’m learning about lots of smaller and local areas in the hudson valley…and I go up to camp in the Adirondacks spring-fall…so hope to meet ya on the water soon. Peace!
