Feature Presentation

This is the story of how nine friends went on a little adventure right in our own backyard – the San Juan Islands.  Join us to discuss what it takes to plan and execute a kayak camping trip in the beautiful but civilized San Juan Islands, and learn what special sorts of hazards exist when planning a water trip in that neck of the “woods.”
