Hi my name is Drew and welcome to the Wired Kayaker. This blog will be a combination of my love for Sea Kayaking and of Technology. I will attempt to seek out great places to kayak and great technology to use while kayaking. Eventually I will expand to other sports and outdoor activities but Kayaking is my main focus here. Look for more to come in the future.

A little about me and my kayaking. I started kayaking in 1997. I had read about the sport and researched things for about a year and one day with some disposable income in my pocket I went and outfitted myself for kayaking on flat water. I took the kayak down to the the water under the Kelly street bridge in Manchester and set about learning how to paddle. I had read the books and was reasonably sure I would do fine. I did and I loved kayaking from the first moment on the water.

I took my Kayak (A Blue Perception Acadia) to my house at the Cape and stored it there for the summer. That summer I looked for places to go kayaking. I met Fred Bull on my first tour. My father and I went with Fred on a tour of Waquiot Bay. That was one of the best trips I ever took because of how much I learned about an area that I thought I knew. But experiencing it directly on the water was fantastic.

I decided that I wanted to kayak more often and I looked for other trips to go on. I then got hooked up with Cape Cod Kayak because I went on one of their singles paddling tours. I was by far the youngest person on the water but I had a good time anyway. There I met the owner of Cape Cod Kayak, Kim.

In the summer of 2001 I worked for Kim as a guide and I worked in the retail store. I loved being on the water but had my fill of working at the store. I still go back and visit from time to time and occasionally my wife and I will go on a tour or two. This past summer we didn’t kayak a single time and this summer I vow not to let that happen again. That is one of the reasons for this blog. I intend to kayak as often as possible this season and put together some photos from each trip I take. I will try and get to as many different trips as I possibly can and give you information about each trip and location. While I kayak I will be working with different technology and write posts about those things that I use. There may even be some video and audio podcasts that come out of this project.

    Hi webmaster,

    I have not been looking too much at my blogrush stuff lately because I haven’t had much call for it. People find me or don’t I’m not to excited over it. I do find interesting article and posts through blog rush but for the most part I am pretty busy.
