I'm fairly new to Wisconsin and am looking for fellow paddlers to join up with. Anyone from the Wausau area?

Try Pure Water Paddlers, they are based out of Eau Claire but I think they do trips all over northern WI. http://www.purewaterpaddlers.com/ Met a few members at Inland Sea Symposium last year, really nice guys. BTW- you're only an hour from the Northern Highlands, lots of beautiful lakes to explore, many with paddle and\or portage in campsites. Pallette Lake is my favorite :)

That's really good advice on the Wolf.|

That's only time I've been scared in the water.

I paddle with a group that is part of the Sierra club, it the River Touring Section (RTS). Our group organizes outings state wide as well as out-of-state depending on the years. We cover almost all aspects of paddling from; open solo ww canoeing, kayaking, adventure trippers (Canada, Alaska) to quiet water paddling. We would love to have you joint some of our outings. You do not have to be part of the Sierra club to participate, call the leader for the details and show up with your equipment. We also organize outings that are not listed on our bulletin those are on invitation basis very much depending on your skill level.

Rapids Riders. http://www.rapidsriders.org/ There's a bunch of paddlers from Wisconsin & Minnesota who plan trips / runs. Need to click on the discussion board, and also need to sign up (free)to post topics & plan runs with other people. Newbies encouraged. Check out the events page. there's some wisconsin events this year. Also check out the greater MN / WI whitewater planner on facebook. http://www.facebook.com/groups/177915432345892/ A lot of the same people on this site too. Great bunch of people who plan runs every weekend/weekdays. If you want to email me for more info, feel free. I'm always looking for other paddlers, & run some wisconsin stuff during the season. I run everything from class I-V. Haven't run the Wolf yet, but is on my list for this year.
