A few years ago, “Surf the North Shore” shirts were a popular area fad. I Always thought they were ironic. I mean, who would surf in Ohio?
Well Actually, This Guy:
Or, If Lake Erie is a challenge, try windsurfing of Barber Point at Moraine State Park– It’s so popular there, its featured on their web site.
Why Feature two posts the first week for Kayaking? Well, because right now I’m getting a ton of hits on the kayaking page from Google. People seem to be discovering the advantages of paddle sports in our region.
And why not? We’ve got whitewater at McConnells Mill and on the Yough, Fishing and scenic rivers on Ohio’s Water trails, Lake and Pond paddling, and sea kayaking on Lake Erie. We’ve got it all.
And in the fact that Kayaking and Canoeing are relatively easy to learn, pretty cheap, and provide a great return on your investment, and you can see why more and more people are discovering the hobby.
And it’s incredibly easy to get started. Grab a boat and head to lake Newport of Glacier in Mill Creek for some easy paddling and to get your feet wet, so to speak.
What is geocaching? It’s best described by this video:
And Thanks to a couple highly prolific Geocachers, TurnPikeTravelers, KKAB22 and CharlesIsland, the Boardman Area is home to dozens of Geocaches.
I just took the 5-year-old out last weekend and she discovered the “Just Off the Path” cache at Boardman Park herself. But there’s literally hundreds of other caches in our area. Have Fun!
