For women traveling abroad, there are a few cultural hitches that can make for awkward moments; nothing that should dissuade a female from embarking on an international trip, but if known ahead of time, can make traveling as a female a whole lot easier. Here are a few points that often are overlooked on the standard packing list.

Making the Transition by Jess Snyder

Everyone is searching for something in life. For me, faith has been my holy grail. I have been trying to find faith in something my whole life. My destination was reached when I stumbled my way into Endless River Adventures and began my journey into the wild world of whitewater. This is a short piece about how I made the transition from someone who whitewater kayaks to a real boater. You mayask what the difference is, well in my opinion, it is the state of mind one is in when they are in their boat.

Trish was a long-time member of the ERA family. She has moved out to New Mexico, gone through phases of kayaking, not kayaking, biking, biking and kayaking.... After paddling with her again this spring, it was fun to pull her article out of the vault and reprint it!

When the blue line shone clearly through the small window of the stick, it was a moment of roller coater emotions. For the first time in my life I wanted to be pregnant, or did I? Thoughts coursed through my veins, pumping out an overwhelming emotional response: did I really want to be pregnant? What would happen to my kayaking, life without kayaking…would I survive?

I always tip my helmet to fellow-boaters that recognize the achievements of those paddlers that came before us. There were so many valiant paddlers who trundled down rivers in the likes of 13 foot+ boats, at a time when words such as "boof" did not even exist. So when Anne--organizer of the 2008 Boater Chick Festival, asked me to help her present Bunny Johns with the 1st Boater Chick Award, in my tongue-tied way I was honored to do so.

a roundtable led by Juliet

So you want to talk about women and kayaking? How about hearing it from a group of women who are in the midst of their college education at an all-womens college (hence the school colors pink & green); all whom have found their way into the college’s outdoor program…. kayaking specifically!...and all of whom stand to take away some pretty amazing life skills when they graduate from college.
