A Decade of Whitewater

Well, I've been boating for 10 years now, so I decided to get with the times and post a blog on the web of all my adventures. Plenty of paddlers have come and gone during these years, but my fascination with fast rivers and falling water is never-ending. I look forward to paddling whitewater for many years to come. Thanks for visiting and enjoy!

Below are some more sweet boofs in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Alabama:

David scared me on this one...but he kicked it right back up and never got his face wet.

6 inches on the Green

We hadn't been to the Green in a while, so last weekend we headed over there and found it pretty low (80%?). I had a good run, but then again I walked Gorilla. David ran GoLeft for his first time perfectly, but he had a painful landing off Gorilla. His ribs are still sore. Here's the pic:
