What nature experience can make you feel most high?
Standing at the top of a big waterfall looking to the bottom.
What was your very first kayaking experience?
I remember being at my cottage one day and one of my parents friends brought out a few rec boats to paddle on the lake. I think I was 12 or so. There was a little bit of a breeze that day (if you gently blew into your hand it would be comparable) and I decided I'd give it a try. I started paddling down wind having no trouble at all and enjoying myself until I decided I'd turn around and head back. When I started paddling up wind I couldn't keep my boat straight and was getting pushed further away from my cottage rather than closer. Anyway to make a long story short someone ended up picking me up in a motor boat and taking me back because I couldn't make it myself. If I only knew then what I know now, hahaha.
