Crazy Fact about Me:
I own a HUGE red van which can easily fit 15 people and their boats.  I play the harmonica while on the road because it annoys my dog who is able to open zippers to find and eat food. Also. . . I was  once “red flagged” by TSA for too much travel.

Why I love kayaking?
Kayaking has taken me all over the country,  the world, and to some of the most remote places.  I have met the best people and my best friends on rivers.  It is a constant challenge and there is always something to work/improve on.  Plus. . . it’s super fun.
