Adding sites to launch map
Posted by: Waterbird on Apr-10-13 10:13 AM (EST) Category: unassigned
How do people feel about adding sites to the launch-site map? I have mixed feelings. On the one hand, I appreciate knowing about places I might not have known about and reading people's comments on the sites.
On the other hand, I've noticed a huge increase in paddlers on some ponds and lakes that used to be quite quiet. Of course, this is partly due to the increase in the popularity of kayaking. But I wonder about the wisdom of attracting even more people to these places by publishing glowing reports of them. In some areas there is very little wilderness left.
Can't have my cake and eat it too, of course. Thoughts?

I've posted a number of launch sites, but I'm still the Lone Ranger most of the time. It seems that most paddlers around here are looking for little sloughs and far off little lakes. They seem to be intimidated by big ships, big waves and big smelly water mammals.
I've posted a lot of launch sites|
