Are you a native Nashvillian or where did you live before moving to Nashville?

Born in pre-bankrupt Detroit, lived briefly in NJ as a tot, raised in Nashville, reside in Mount Juliet.

Paddlers: What do you paddle - kayak or canoe? What type of water is your first preference, second and third?

I'm a flatwater and class I-II+ whitewater paddler, but pretty much swim everywhere. Wilderness Systems Tsunami 125 and Liquid Logic Remix 69.

What are your favorite things to do?

I hike regularly in cool weather, paddle in warm weather, ride my Triumph in most any weather, and play music any time I can.


We are a four-kayak household and as everyone knows, my wife wears the Hydros in the family.

What Ron D is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group of people and I love being able to get out and float more often.

    Well, if it helps, I have pain from all my typing...and big, rock-like knots in my neck. Kayaking not gonna help that. Stinko! Maybe someone could just pull me along?

    HR was pretty warm last weekend, some cold spots. Some people wore sleeveless wetsuits or hydroskins, but we spent a fair amount of time in the water practising things. Would be good to check with your group leader before you go as conditions can change. Might work to wear regular gear and bring splash wear if you get cold. Sun screen sure came in handy.
