    Default Hi from iGreens (Jim Thornton)

    Hi, Jim here from Nottigham. I've been canoeing for about 45 years, mainly touring in England and Wales but a bit abroad as well. Got an open canoe two years ago. Just come back from the bank holiday w/e on the wye at Welsh Bicknor.

    I run a website that may interest some members. www.igreens.org.uk. It's primarily a political/environmentalist site but i also post a fair bit on canoeing and have touring guides to the Wye, Thames, Severn, and Trent as well as some smaller rivers and a few abroad. Take a look.

    I noticed someone asking about canoeing in Poland recently. I went there three years ago, and have posted details of the Brda, and Wda rivers in Kazuby region. There is some great canoe touring in Poland.

    Welcome Jim.

    I've read your iGreens guides and I've found them very useful as an aid for planning trips. I've used the Wye and Severn guides before and I plan to use the Thames one too.

    Hope you enjoy the site.

    Hi Jim

    Welcome to Song of the Paddle. Looks like an interesting site you have there. I'll need to spend some time having a look at it.

    ps There was a comma in your link which I fixed.

    Default be warned about igreens

    Thanks for fixing the comma! I'm always doing stuff like that. You've probably already figured out that while the canoeing on igreens is fairly straightforward the rest of the site is pretty strong freemarket (anti greenpeace) politics! Hang on to your hats!

    This is a brilliant discussion group BTW. i'm only just beginning to explore.

    My best ever open canoeing trip was five years ago on the Okefenokee swamp in Georgia. It took a bit of organising but was absolutely brilliant. Three days of total wilderness.
