Canoeing/Boating Adventures!

Paddling Lake Oswego.

Paddling Lake Oswego.

I absolutely love canoeing, but The Pres and Tree Rider aren’t quite old enough help me load the canoe on top of the car.  That’s why we mostly hike (also, we love hiking).  Nevertheless, we share my adventures in Ol’ Tippecanoe.  Because when you buy a plastic canoe for $100, it obviously needs a historically humorous name.

Also, sea kayaking in Delaware Bay.

Trips are broken down by county.  We love suggestions and trip reports!  Post a comment or contact us at
