I live in Atlanta, GA USA and enjoy Class 3-4 whitewater rivers. I enjoy good scenery and good friends as much as the rapids.
I paddled the full length of the Grand Canyon last year in my "duckie" aka "inflatable love toy". I typically paddle rivers in the SE USA because there are so many nearby.
I've been fortunate enough to meet some rbp er's in real life (well actually in Julie Keller's hot tub ;-) I've also met several of you while leading the Chattooga section 3 1/2 trip for Scott Bristow's memorial.
"What a long strange trip it's been."
