As it says, I went canoeing with scouts and now my son is hooked(Im a mom). We have kayaks. I am wanting to become more safe before i take him out without experienced people. Anyways, I plan on taking a few lessons and my friend and I (she has never gone before) are going to go out to get more comfortable.
Enough rambling, I am petrified of snakes. I know to leave them alone and avoid trees whenever possible. But anyways, is there a time of day we could go out where we would be less likely to see them or an avoid these times of day lol?
For the ladies and maybe manboob men- should we capsize, do the ladies get in the way of getting back in the kayak successfully? Do normal life jackets make it harder? I am sorry for my weird question.
We plan on just going to nice easy rivers and lakes and such near where we live. Any advice for a noob will be great. I don’t want to let my corny fears keep my from doing something fun with my son.
