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.


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

What John M. is saying about this Meetup Group

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!

    I got your voicemail, John. Thanks for following up. I will need to use one of your kayaks for this Sunday. I am saving up for my own, though :)

    Thinking of being on the waitlist for Sunday's 4 hour class. My son and I. Do you think two sports could open up!

    John--I have wanted to learn to kayak for quite some time and I am wondering if you have scheduled any beginning paddling classes in August. I will be coming from out of state and my personal situation requires some planning time. Thank you so much. Penny

    Hi John

    I see on the RSVP for the 16th Intermediate Class you have 2 people that can not attend. Could you take myself, wife Pam and Daughter Ariel a total of 3? We just purchased our new kayaks at outside world and paddled on the hoch today. Had a greet time.

    1 10ft rogue
    1 9ft Rogue
    1 Jackson Funrunner for my daughter.

    Let me know and we will signup tomorrow morning.

    I am so bummed about not attending tomorrows class. Last year I broke my wrist in April becoming "out for the year"-this year, so far, I am not going down like that. I hope to make it out real soon. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for me. Have fun, I will be wishing I was there....peace.­
