I have posted several “heading west” blog posts over the years. But the truth of the matter is that if you live on the east coast, you inevitably need to, well, head west. I suppose you could go north or south, but really – who does that. Crazy talk. We headed west from New Hampshire… Read More Heading West – Sept 2020

The 2014 Concrete Canoe National competition was hosted at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (UPJ), and the paddling competition was held at the Quemahoning Reservoir nearby, a beautiful venue. We were of course rooting for the Michigan Tech team since our son is on that team, but there were teams from all over the… Read More Concrete Canoe (PA) – June 2014
