Thanks again to everyone!
I have ordered "The Complete Sailor" it should be here by Saturday.
I've also made contact with an ASA instructor who will be offering 2 classes in New Mexico next month, so I will be attending one of those. I'll have to drive a bit, but I think it's worth it.
Soulesailor: I've had both touring and WW boats. In the touring boats we paddled every local lake, and most within a couple hundred miles. We also took them to the Grand Tetons on 2 separate occasions. All of my WW time was spent on the Animas River in Durango, CO, and some on the NM side.
