Introduction

Paddling and playing in the outdoors beats anything I can think of EXCEPT playing with my two grandchildren. I am a certified kayak instructor and I really enjoy introducing people to paddling.

What are your favorite outdoor activities?

I spend just about every spare minute paddling somewhere.

Where is the coolest place you've been?

Costa Rica. It is like visiting Hawaii on a budget!

What's the most adventurous thing you've done?

Jumped out of an airplace at 2:00am with no moon, just the light from the stars. SCUBA at night.

Where is your favorite getaway spot?

My Kayak.

How did you hear about Outdoor Club South?

Scanning meetup sites.

If you love the outdoors, there is no better group in Atlanta to link up with.

    Thanks John for great instruction!!!!­
    I recommend The Basic River Kayak class to everyone!!!! I have been Kayaking for years but never took a class, until July 4, 2014. Within the first 2 hrs. I had already gotten my money's worth. John Miller is an excellent instructor and taught my a lot that I didn't know. Regardless of your level of experience take this course!

    Hi John,
    I forgot to mention when I saw you Saturday that I found out how people can use their GPS to get to the Johnson Ferry Park. It shows up on my GPS (Google Maps) as "Urban Currents Sit-on-top Put-in". Hope this helps. Have a great week!

    Hi John, Dennis Kast, me (Lisa Macy) and my 19 year old daughter Sydney Munster would like to RSVP for the Sat July 13 Class. We paid in Dec through pay pal. I tried to RSVP on the site but it won't let me unless I pay again. Can I reserve 3 spots for us. I can borrow my roommate's boat if necessary. We are beginners with some experience paddling in gentle places on the river. I am 5'10" 155 lbs and can get you Syd and Dennis' info. Thanks, Lisa Macy [masked], [masked]

    Kayak Classes and Trips for Beginners!

    Hello John, I don't know if this is the best way to contact you or not. A few friends and I are going on a long distance trek in 2013 from Atlanta to Darien. 2 of us aren't very experienced and are interested in taking a kayak class prior to the trek. Can you teach it and how much is it? We are also open to other paddlers coming along. It should be 3 weeks or less.

    Hi, John,

    I signed up and paid for the outing, but didn't have the option to pay the extra $50 for the boat rental. Please let me know how I can do that. I'd like to use the Jackson Rogue if possible. You can e-mail me at [masked] or call or text me at [masked] to let me know how to pay the difference. Really enjoyed the beginner class today and am really looking forward to Hiawassee!

    Thanks!
    ~Mike
