If you weren’t able to listen to the broadcast yesterday, you can listen to the podcast of the interview at  The discussion focused mainly on getting started in paddling with information about the different paddling disciplines and a few important points to keep in mind when buying equipment and looking for instruction.  If you […]

Paddler’s Fall “To-Do” List

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

On a cold, rainy fall day at the end of the paddling season, here are a few things that a canoeist/kayaker can be thinking about. If you’ve worked on improving your skills all summer, perhaps it’s time to consider purchasing a dry suit to extend your season. If you prefer not to paddle in anything […]

Odds and Ends

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

We’re quickly coming to the end of the paddling season for most people here in southeast Wisconsin.  Just thought I’d throw out a reminder that I still have a few kayak trips scheduled between now and October 15th. This coming weekend (which by the way is supposed to be warm and sunny) I have a […]

Looking for Things to Do?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

I just got home from attending a planning meeting for WACKO, which stands for Waterford Area Canoe & Kayak Outing (not a support group for paddling nuts).  The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 6th, this year.  It’s a great event for all paddlers regardless of the type of boat you paddle or your skill […]

Fun is Just Around the Corner!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

It’s still a little cold for most people to be paddling in Wisconsin since most of the water is still frozen.  But it won’t be long now.  Temperatures going above freezing and the shrinking snow piles incite almost terminal cases of spring fever.  The only real cure for paddlers is the coming of warmer air […]

Are You Carrying Illegal Substances in Your Kayak?

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

On October 28, 2009, the State of Wisconsin enacted legislation that prohibits the transport of water or plants from one body of water to another on your boat, boat trailer, vehicle, or other gear. For kayakers that means that you need to make sure that you clean all water, mud, and weeds from the inside […]

Making Lists

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

I’ve been preparing for a presentation that I’m doing this Thursday on “Places to Paddle”, so I’ve been thinking alot about all the places that I have gone paddling in the past 20 years and all the places I would still like to go.  I was especially thinking about what I would consider to be […]

Time to Head South

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

It looks as if our January thaw is over and we’re headed back into the deep freeze.  Time to think about heading someplace warm for a week or two. There are almost an unlimited number of places that you could go if money is no object, but I have a suggestion for those of you […]

These are a few of my favorite things

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

I’m happy to say that this has been a successful first season for SherriKayaks, and it’s not over yet!  The down side to that is that I run out of time to get everything done that I would like to do.  Case in point, my blog doesn’t get updated as often as it should.  I […]

The Calm Before the Storm (so to speak)

Monday, April 20th, 2009

On this past Friday afternoon, southeast Wisconsin enjoyed one of those rare April days that are sunny with temperatures in the seventies.  At the last minute, I had someone call and schedule a kayak trip on the Fox River from Big Bend to Tichigan just because it was going to be such a beautiful day […]
