Favorite paddling experiences : Anytime Maryland Chute is at 3.7ʹ′ First night in Costa Rica for a boating trip and experiencing a 6.4 earthquake. Running the upper Jondachi in Equador with over 180 rapids counted in a 6 mile run. Running a rapid on the Jatate river in Chiapas, Mexico after the local fishermen said that we would die if we ran the rapid. Running the Cheat Canyon at 12ʹ′-0ʺ″(at Albright Bridge) in a WS Siren. Running the slot (river left) at Iron ring (Upper Gauley) at a super low water run. Learning my first cartwheel on the Lower Yough at the hole located past the usual take out.
