Back to my roots
« on: July 25, 2016, 03:29:04 PM »
Back and hip problems have kept me off my Stand Up Boards this summer.  But I can't stay out of the water. And I can kneel.   And paddling 52 degree WW in the mountains was just the place to be this summer.

Nantahala River.  WNC



I started paddling whitewater on this river 35 years ago.

Great Photo.  We adapt to what we can.  Good job Max.  Nothing like a run through good water to get your juices flowing.  Whats left of them anyway.
