What are your favorite outdoor activities?

My favorite outdoor activities include but are not limited to paddling, hiking with my dog, Tyler, and managing my yards.

Where is the coolest place you've been?

The coolest place I've been to is Antartica on assignment to manage and record garbage.

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

The most adventurous thing I've done is live on my 28' Westsail for 3 years.

Where is your favorite getaway spot?

My favorite getaway spot is rather large: I love motoring down Hwy 395 from Reno, NV to Death Valley, CA (i.e., Mount Lassen, Mono Lake, the east side of Yosemite, Bear Valley, ...) where I can find opportunities to paddle, hike, backpack, camp, ski, explore and relax (not to mention, get-away-from-it-all).

How did you hear about Outdoor Club South?

I'd been a member and organizer of Tennessee Valley Adventure since 2007. Outdoor South absorbed the club a few months ago and I came along with the package

Outdoor Club South is an amazing organization. It gives me the ability to participate with a variety of people from various chapters.

    Thanks for the greeting. I look toward to it
    as well. Are children welcome
    to most gatherings? I have 2 sons ages 12 and 9. They handle themselves
    fairly well on the water.

    Hi Debra, I booked 4 seats (family/friend)­ for the Ocoee River Rafting on 9/18 @ 12:30. Is anyone interested in having another meetup and joining us on that day?

    hey deborah...just saw your looking forward to it...haven't floated down a river in a while. I'm a bit confused...are we going with Troy's group, or going a little earlier? Looks like our route is a little bit longer...and maybe a little more quiet, lol ?

    I don't know of a specifically female canoer group, however, you might try getting in touch with Huntsville Canoe Club (huntsvillecano­ They have a number of women members, and you might suggest such a group to them! That's a cool idea. I have also heard that the Paint Rock is a nice river for relaxed paddling, I hope to try it this season.
