I'm looking to expand my paddling horizon. My backyard is good- the new river in wv but I'm looking to do something new to me like protected coastal paddling, or just see a different part of the country. So if ya want to come to southern wv sometime and try your hand at some class II, III whitewater then I can hook you up- shuttles, trip leading, informal tips, even boats like duckies, ww kayaks, and rafts and a place to stay. In return I'd like to explore some new places, and have someone share with me their expertise and resources. Sounds like a win-win to me.

I can't help you, but I think idea of "paddle trip swap" is a good one.
yeah, I think it makes sense|

I take a lot of people out on the water in ducks, kayaks, and rafts but it would be nice to get the same opportunity somewhere else.
If you would like to paddle the coast |

In SC you can email me. We have the longest stretch of undeveloped coast on the eastern seaboard. Checkout the trip to Capers Island that at REI they have a short video about their trip which they charge about $750 to join. If you join the sea kayak Charleston meetup group you can checkout my photos on the members list and see some of photos of the area. Sea Kayak Carolina also has info about the area.
I see you mention FL springs|

I grew up in FL. This winter my wife and I paddled our canoe in the Everglades and Juniper springs. We also did some kayaking on the Suwannee River a year ago. I am hoping to go back again this year. If your wife wants to paddle with you here in SC I have access to another sea kayak.
sounds like the beginning of a plan,|

I'm not sure about the details of what you are looking for, but protected coastal paddles and Florida spring runs are pretty much what we do.
thanks for all the offers and help|

I'll email you and we'll come up with a plan. Feel free to email me if you have a specific timeframe when you're interested paddling in southern wv.

I think it a good idea, worthy of it's own thread to catch more attention. We have met quite a few P-nutters, and would like to meet more.
Winter Paddling Vacation Swap|

If you are interested in a nice winter trip I would be happy to show you around the Corpus Christi, Tx area. I have done this for a couple of P-netters. Nov through Jan are our best paddling months. We have paddling on a couple of coastal rivers, in a large bay, on an extensive protected lagoon system between the Gulf of Mexico and the mainland, and finally in the Gulf of Mexico itself.
wow, thanks for all the offers,|

now I'll discuss with the wife the possibilities and see what sounds appealing to her. Also note, that the original idea was to give "the host" the same opportunity in my neck of the woods. So feel free to pursue that.
