Last summer I paddled the 38 miles from Liberty Tx. to Anhuac Tx. on the Trinity river. It was downstream all the way, but upwind most of the time,towing my cooler in a tube behind me got kinda taxing.Gotta be some great trips out there I haven't thought of yet ,any suggestions? Plus,planning on hiking the Lone Star trail thru the Sam Houston Nat'l forest this summer<I'll take any tips or Hints on that,too.Thanks and ya'll have a great day!

Im more of a fisherman so I havent realy went treking around too much with a Yak. Have you tried the Guadalupe around NB. That ought to be pretty decent. Not sure how far down the river you can go but with the Boy Sscouts years ago we made trips down this stretch of river a couple of times a year.

I've done some great kayaking trips in Wisconsin and Illinois. What type of kayak you cruising in? I've sadly only got a recreational Pelican Persuit 100 that's falling apart. One of these days going to invest in a bigger kayak that I can hit the big lakes and ocean on. Only need 5,000 dollars

the trinity is good for Texas, done that one myself a few times. the Colorado is good too. the Guadalupe can be alot of fun starting from Canyon, but turns flat further down.

there a river that runs thru San Marcus, for some reason I cant remember the name at the moment. you put in at the park in town. some rapids, lots of flat water. its a fun day trip.

Ha hA Ha. I know what you mean which is the only reason I can laugh about that. Got a Pelican Pursuit 100 when I first got into kayaking. Still got that bad boy and it gets plenty of use as a back up yak for friends. So I cant laugh too hard. Works okay but when I upgraded to a Prowler 13 it was a whole nother world for me! Man what a step up that was. I was really suprised to on what a difference a good quality paddle made too! Considering the Trident 15 or a Hobbie Pro Angler as a near future upgrade.

Sounds like a drag for sure!
I use a soft sided cooler that I can cram in the hull or bungie in the tankwell.
