I am new to the [email protected]
Forum. I live in Indiana and have been teaching special education for 42 years. I have been wanting a [email protected]
320 since I looked at one on display hitched to a Subaru Outback at Canoecopia in Madison, WI, about 7 years ago. I brought home a [email protected]
brochure, which has been on my coffee table since then!
I recently retired and I am now ready to begin living the dream (on a budget)! If I pay too much for the toys, I won't be able to afford to go places to use them! I decided before going all in yet, I would look for a used [email protected]
Back in October, I purchased a [email protected]
2003 and in near mint condition. Before this, my #1 passion was kayaking. Kayaking and camping go hand-in-hand for me. I love primitive tent camping and also kayak camping, but recently my back does not love it! I own a small fleet of kayaks so I am able to do smaller waters, rivers (just not whitewater), causeways in Florida, and open waters of Great Lakes, including two smaller kayaks for my grandkids.
I have friends who I kayak with and live in Indianapolis who have just purchased new [email protected]
, so we are about to let the travels begin. They both have larger vehicles. I have a Forester and I am now looking to find a vehicle that is more equipped to tow my [email protected]
alone and with my toys, (i.e. bicycle and kayaks.)
I am about to begin a new discussion on the dilemma I am facing, that of traveling with my [email protected]
and my 17' sea kayak. The title will be "Towing My [email protected]
with my sea kayak". I am going on a road trip to Florida in a month and I need to find another vehicle. I also have other dilemmas as well. I am new at this, so I am looking forward to receiving advise from experienced [email protected]
I am excited to be a part of this forum. Happy camping!
