Now, I am still in the early stages of the addiction. I paddle a 33 year old fiberglass canoe that I paddle with a $40 kayak paddle. I have about $300 into my set up, including gear, and it is enough for me at this point. Don't get me wrong, if I had the expendable income, I would own a boat for every occasion and enough gear to survive in any conditions. What I am getting at is, I have enough to get me out on the water and I was not headed to Canoecopia to buy. I was headed there to be surrounded by the love of paddling. And that's what I found.
Here are some of my favorites from the show.
