    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I love river canoeing.

    Last week some friends, my spouse and I decided to paddle on the upper Manistee River in Michigan. Spring is progressing and it always nice to see the seasons on the river. We used our moderately fast tandem, an old Mad River Malecite with a nice stiff hull, fine entry lines...
