I am planning to start pool lessons/sessions for kayaking, but I'll be bringing my wife along for most if not all of the fun - she freaks out when she's sees someone roll and insists she'll never kayak.
Although, if I get a frame for the raft and she learns to row she can be my support boat! Problem is I doubt she'd want to pilot in class III+ water
I'm also considering getting a frame and and IK, so I can solo the Puma and she can run the IK or vice-verse.
I'd also consider an interesting multi-day trip in central/south America that looks fun to just be tourists on - and I've seen a lot of carnage video of the Zambezi River in Africa. I am on a budget, but I've saved for 7 years for this.
My current plan is to apply for permits at the Chama, San Juan, Desolation, Dinosaur, the 4 rivers, Salt, and Rogue and the 2015 GC, see what I pull and talk to my friends at the Adobe Whitewater club to see what they pull.
What I really want to know though, since this may be the only time in my life that I have the time and money to do pretty much whatever I want, is what "do this in your lifetime" experience would you recommend?
Thanks again, I appreciate the ideas!
