About me
I’m in my early 50’s and have been in canoes since before I could walk (and kayaks shortly after), as have our kids. My wife and I have been married over 20 years, and I introduced her to serious paddling when we were still dating (if you want to see if a relationship will last, go paddling ;-). We sport a family of 7. We own 10 canoes (1 Vintage Moore Venom Racer being refurbished), 7 kayaks, and have paddled, built, repaired, altered, or modified almost every conceivable make or type of canoe on the market (barring dugouts). Several times a year we try to introduce people to the sport.

The wild outdoors is where my heart lies, and paddling gets me to the places I long for the most. However, the camera brings the memories home. Often we paddle with over 100 pounds of photography gear on our trips. I have hundreeds of gallery quality pictures to keep me refreshed of our exploits.

We have paddled throughout most of the Mid-West and Wetsern US, + Western Canada to east of the Canadian Rockies.

We love big lonely waters and nearly always sleep under the stars. However, based on the popularity of Southern and Central California, we often resort to more populated lakes that are difficult to get to (few if any power boats)...but we still sleep under the stars.
