The River Called The river called, or so I thought. So, I paddled that beautiful stream. My companions and I , the whole day sought, The peace, the quiet, the birds, and the bream. But the gift I will keep, from the river that day, Is the love of my life, and the friends I have made.

A group for individuals to leave the world behind and focus on paddling and enjoying nature and the outdoors. I would really like to see this group migrate into a venue where both newbie and experienced paddlers can get out on the water for day trips and multi-day trips on both moving and flat water. There are some incredible places to explore!
