We left VT on April 6th and started our kayaking trip across the USA and British Columbia.
I'm about to drop photos like it's hot!
|The trip was delayed a few days because of a snow storm.|
|Packed up and ready to hit the road to WV!|
|We made it to WV! I squirt boated with Jim Snyder at the Alley on the Cheat River.|
On our way to Columbus, GA we stopped in Washington, GA to visit with Jeff's aunt and uncle.
|We spent a couple days paddling on the Chattahoochee River in Columbus.|
Brook went swimming! That doesn't happen often.
|We ran into this guy Stephen.|
|Jeff is blurry :(|
|Lot's of rolls!|
|We left Columbus and headed to Fayetteville, GA to spend a few days with the Farrington's.|
They live close to where The Walking Dead is filmed in Senoia, GA.
This photo was taken in front of the wall in Alexandria.
|Went to Buckners one night for a southern dinner and it was delicious!|
|We left GA and headed to AZ. Where we visited my Aunt Sandra and Uncle Robert in Tuscon.|
Jeff and my uncle Robert playing guitar.
|We bought a new (to us) RV in Tuscon!|
Jeff worked at the office in Mesa for a few days before we headed to Reno.
|We took a side trip to Coloma, CA from Reno and paddled on the SF and NF of the American River.|
Jeff throwing some ends on the SF.

|Made it on a few podiums that weekend. |
The odds of podiuming improve dramatically when you compete in every event.
|The best part of Reno River Fest is getting to hang out with friends.|
|We did some SUP surfing in Sparks, NV.|
|We headed to ID next and stopped at Kelly's WW park in Cascade.|
Brook needed to be carried over the metal grate bridge.

|We did some more SUP surfing at Kelly's.|
|Our next stop was a quick paddle on the Salmon River before heading to the Locsha.|
This photo is on the Locsha River. Thanks Devon for guiding Jeff and Scott down the monstrous ww. Leaving Erin and I free to play!
|We camped upstream of the put-in of the Locsha.|
Awesome weekend paddling big water with a great crew.
|After the Lochsa we spent the night at Erin and Scott's. |
Paddled a wave on the Clearwater River with Erin and then headed to NRS in Moscow.
I love NRS! Mark treated us like royalty.
|Spent a couple days in Spokane, WA with Judd and Melanie. Was not allowed to sit on the bench.|
|Brook loved the Kaiser kids!|
I'm going to stop here and will finish part 2 when we get home in a couple weeks.
Till next time,
