Hopefully you've done ""something"" similar
actually paddling on the water - because -
nothing really compares.
Need more info about background on the water
before I would advise staying home.
Experienced kayaker died near Portland - this year -
in rugged terrain and steep cliffs.
There is a slew of rescues, incidents and mishaps
in the Portland area in the past few years.
WHERE are you planning to paddle ?
You have any ICE COLD water experience
- proper gear, training, knowledge, etc ?
