    Beer And Canoeing

    I like canoeing. I also like good beer.  While I paddle for pleasure, I also enjoy doing my part and cleaning up trash left by other people. Doing a cleanup allows me to practice my maneuvering skills and leave the river a better place at the same time.  I pick up a lot of...

    My Dad.

    We always had a canoe..or two..and my Dad, a carpenter by trade had the frame of a canoe in his shop. He had that thing in there for years. Plans for it. The beautiful wood laid out in strips.... I never thought he'd actually finish it. A few years ago, when he was close to...

    My Winter Project

    The boats are stored for the winter, except those that will need a little sanding/epoxy/varnish on the hulls and the bare wood oiled. So, I'll be starting my next project.It will be a solo touring sea kayak.  I'm thinking about a hybrid design - stressed marine plywood hull and...

    Canoeing Is a Lot of Fun!

    I really like to go canoeing.  I love being in a boat on the water in the warm sunshine paddling for miles.  I would love to do it again.  I just went for 5 miles but I would love to go for the 10 mile ride.

    Love It

    Love the teamwork of canoeing with someone. In contrast, I do not kayaking because it is a one man job and hard work.

    A Festival Of Mud

    When it rains in the desert, flash floods aren't the only things to watch out for. We were on a trip with Dvorak Canoe and Kayak on the lower canyons of the Rio Grande (Just below Big Bend) The first day started out OK, hot, sunny, wild turkeys strutting around the sand bars...

    Owning The River

    Today I did a cleanup trip on the Pine River in Michigan (Peterson Bridge to Low Bridge). I was with a bunch of skilled paddlers and we took out 8 large bags of trash (some pretty interesting, like MRE's).Well, anyway, the water level was nice, and it is a swift river, for up...

    Voyageur

    I took my canoe out today, carrying it down the back lane to the riverbank, and setting off on the tranquil Seine river, which lacks the magnitude of its French namesake, with a depth of only 3 to 5 feet in most locations, and with a very modest currant. The riverbank landscape...
