It is not only a story about kayaking in north western New Jersey which has some amazing wild and open spaces to explore but is a broader story of doing what you love and spending time developing and cultivating that passion.
Flat Water Kayaker explores the history of the area through the eyes of the author and personal experiences growing up on New Jersey's largest lake.

About the Author

Jeremy Travers grew up on Lake Hopatcong ,the headwaters of the Musconetcong River, where his love of the water was cultivated and encouraged by his friends and family. In his youth he spent countless hours exploring New Jersey's largest lake. It wasn't until he returned to New Jersey after a period of traveling around the country and living in Vermont that his passion for the Musconetcong Watershed took hold. He began documenting every kayak trip he took within the watershed and surrounding lakes through video, photos, and the written word. He volunteers with the Musconetcong Watershed Association and their river monitoring program as well as the Lake Hopatcong Foundation where he co-leads kayak paddles around Lake Hopatcong to help raise money for the organization and share the rich history of the lake with paddlers.
By sharing his experiences on and around the water with others his hope is that they will be inspired to go out and have their own experiences and work to keep that wild and open space.
