The following are several boating and travel-related sites I've found interesting:
Boat Launches in Washington State
WA State Ferry System
San Juan Islands, WA USA
Washington State Tourism - pretty good
Boating in the Pacific NW
Shoreline photos along the saltwater shores of Washington State.
Sound Rowers rowing/paddling/pedaling racing organization
Human powered boat resources
Human powered boat site from a European perspective
USA national traffic and road closure site
Commercial Pedal Boat Sites:
Aquacycle - giant yellow tired amphibious tricycle
Nauticraft Escapade - which I bought
in July, 1999 and am having a lot of fun with. If you want a pedal boat that
can handle 4 to 5 foot waves and keep you dry in a storm, this is it!
Open Water Cycling, the manufacturer of the super high performance Cadence pedal powered boat that looks something like a kayak. I have one of these, too, and it is my favorite boat when I want to go fast or far or launch where there is no ramp.
Pedalcraft, a US West Coast Nauticraft and Cadence dealer
Kevco HydroCycle (link no longer active!)
Velosea's Soleau (Out of business!)
Suncatcher HPB, also going (gone?) out of business
Surfbike Products' Surfbike - speedy, maneuverable (Out of business!)
New Cycling Frontier's speedy Wavebike (Out of business!)
Hydrocycles' Wave Walker - fairly fast though not nearly as fast as the Cadence, stable
TRAMPOFOIL unfortunately the manufacturer is now out of business (hydrofoil, cool)
The White Dwarf human powered blimp
Here is an excellent HPV links and resource page by R. C. Gilmore
Power assist frequently asked questions
Yogurt Study50MB. A rather silly movie about intelligent yogurt.
The following are a bunch of hiking and mountaineering sites I have found to be of interest:Washington Trails Association: - Excellent source of current trail reports plus club-related information such as volunteer crews for trail work.
- Awesome site that lists geocaches world-wide and provides info on how to get started.
WSGA - Washington State Geocachers Association's Website
US Border wait time
