New NW Paddling Guide Blog!

I'm finishing up the revision of Randel Washburne's classic NW paddling guide, "60 Trips Kayaking Puget Sound and the San Juans" by Mountaineers Books. The book will be available June 2012. I've created a blog and Facebook page to support the book release. Both offer sample trips from the book, favorite trips not in the book, and updates on routes, public access, and other stuff.

Here's the blog url:
