  Not endangering them -- grand kids
  Posted by: MMF on Dec-02-12 7:28 AM (EST)
 

No...we're (grandparents)not going to put them in class III or higher rapids But we want to get them used to putting on a helmet and PFD when they get into their river kayak. The three year old will be just
putting the helmet on to give her a sense of belonging -- when the kayak is beached. She's the one who fought putting on the toddler's PFD when she was younger -- she noticed the leg strap was missing from her sisters' PFDs. Their nearest paddling venues are mountain streams -- they do the pools, but its just a matter of time before they'll want to try the small rapids before and after those pools. Thanks for the places to look and
what to look for.
