The Tour has begun.

Dave picked me up from my home in PA at the beginning of April and we’ve been on the road ever since.


Our first stop was the Tariffville Triple Crown were we also did a boat demo for Collinsville Canoe and Kayak.

Getting in the Molan

We held our own amongst some good slalom paddlers, and Demshitz even made the Newspaper click to find out why.

Here are a few photos from the event, it consisted of a down river race, slalom, and a freestyle event.

We followed the water from there which lead us to wet and wonderful West Virginia, where we stayed at the Wet House for a few days and got some great boating in, and you can see it just by clicking this link.  Thanks again to the boys at the Wet House for putting us up.
