So I'm in the earlyish stages of building an adventure van and now that I've got electrics and a bed in it I'm looking for places to go with it. I work in NJ and it's parked at my job most of the time. I just picked up an Oru Bay+ figuring that it'll be good to have on hand to get out and about. Now I'm going to be looking for things in norther NJ, southern NY and easter PA to get out to during the week. I'll be taking longer trips as well.

As for paddling experience I've canoed a decent amount an done a little kayaking on those trips. Not looking to do crazy rapids at the moment. Just get out on flat water and enjoy myself.

Welcome aboard! I love your plan. One of my most memorable vacations was driving to Florida with a canoe on my car, staying in a cheap motel and paddling or sailing every day. There is a lot of thin water in NJ, bays, marshes and rivers. The south shore of Long Island too, from Jamaica Bay east. Keep us posted.
