Because a lot of interest has been expressed in having a Solo Tripping Forum, this forum is being started. It initially will just have one forum, but if it proves to be an active forum, we will make Sub-forums.

Enjoy this new forum! :thumbup:

This forum is a great idea. Lots of topics particular to the solo tripper here, whether they be adventuring alone into the great outdoors, or just paddling a solo canoe with a group.

I have only done a few solo trips in the past, but am looking forward to doing more. I am building myself a solo cedar stripper right now, that is just about ready to have the inside of the hull glassed. I hope to have it on the water for a June paddle.

Is this the Solo TRIPPING or Solo PADDLING forum?

I realize that solo tripping clearly involves solo paddling but a solo paddler such as myself would not consider what I do as solo tripping.

Not that it matters of course, I always use Active Topics!

I kinda figured this would get questioned, and rightfully so, as I know opinions differ.

To me, they are pretty much one and the same for the most part with most knowledge required. Gear, planning and techniques are all similar for me, whether going alone or with a group. Thusly, I would consider any aspect of paddling solo to fit. Anyone wanting the independence of paddling solo with a group would have lots to learn from other solo paddlers. And no matter how you categorize it, anyone would at least fit the "Would-be Solo Tripper" classification Barbara put in the title. ;)

The actual experience outside of the actual paddling of the canoe of course has lots of differences. Losing the group dynamics makes for lots of changes. I do enjoy group activity, but also the solitude of being alone. Each has their own place for me.

Thank you for making this forum Marscanoe and those who suggested it.

I've been solo tripping mostly for past 7yrs. I get out anywhere from 6-12 times a year solo tripping. I have been fortunate enough to meet up with a few myccr paddlers for some decent trips so I now do a few group trips here and there but still paddle solo.

I got into it because canoeing is my favorite thing to do and the once a year family group trip just wasn't cutting it.

Cheers

this forum seems to have more moving members than the last one.should bring an interesting other demention to it. i am strictly a flatwater solo tripper,but any solo tripping is of interest. i solo trip near home( wny) and the adks. hope to be back on the water by mid summer. i have been using my zre paddle for an exercise tool for my shoulder surgury recovery! being able to paddle again is a great incentive to recovery.
