Hi from Austin, TX

Post by Brgran »

Hi everyone. Glad to see a forum like this still alive. I grew up in Northwest Indiana very close to Lake Michigan. Got into my first Kleeper in the early 90’s. Sailed on Lake Michigan, kayaked several rivers, did an epic 5 day island hopping kayak sailing adventure. We had 2 Aerius II Kleppers and 2 Greenland II Folbots. BSD sail rigs and BOSS outriggers. I’m getting back into these now that my kids are getting in their teens. Hope to have lots more adventures.

Welcome to the forum, your pic really made me smile. That is quite a motley crew you have, ponchos and all! Hope you find some support for more adventures, there are quite a few avid sailors among the paddlers here.
Best,
