This summer was full of traveling to amazing places but with one end goal in mind. The Stikine. Whitewater of the southeast where I grew up paddling is of a different kind than the Stikine. All summer I pushed myself to focus on paddling big volume rivers unlike the kind found in NC to hopefully …

High Water Raven Forking

The Oconaluftee gauge is at 340cfs and +100cfs an hour when I checked it before my last class of the day. Excited, I messaged a few people who I knew would be interested in going. Some people for their first time. “It won’t be over 15 inches,” I thought. Throughout my class period, dreams of …

We are all between swims…

I took my first swim for quite some time last weekend, and thought I’d share some musings on it with you all. (If you want to just see a beating, scroll to the bottom of the page, cringe and then go practice with a throw line so you’re as accurate as Jonny was!) As a …
