Favorite Rivers/Places to paddle
I love any run in the Cohutta Wilderness. That is where I grew up and learned to paddle. I consider that my home furf. My favorite place to play is the Ocoee river, but my favorite places to kayak of all time are Bear Creek, Raven Fork, The Green , and Toxaway
Out side of Kayakaing I’m proud of becoming an Eagle Scout and of Through hiking the Appalachian Trail.
As for kayaking I love doing Vertical Miles
I have accomplished vertical miles on the Green truss, Thompson Creek, Nantahala Cascades, the Ocoee River, and Suck Creek.
I claim First descents on several drops and creeks around North Ga and TN.
I also have found lots of joy in running big waterfalls.
I think Ace is a great place to learn because of the quality of the river we have to teach and learn on. I also think the Ace Kayaking Staff is hands down one of the best instructional teams around.
