ABOUT THE TRIP
Follow me as I paddle the length of the James River, 345 miles from Iron Gate to the Chesapeake Bay. I'm not a pro, but I am a big fan of the log flume at Kings Dominion, so I feel confident in my kayaking abilities. I'll post as much as AT&T Wireless allows me:
A special thanks to all those who have supported me on this excellent adventure:
THEY TAUGHT ME.
James River Association are stewards of the river: they protect it, take care of it, and teach others to respect it. They helped be plan my trip and have been there for me through my preparations.
THEY TRAINED ME.
If you're going to paddle the James, you best be prepared. Greg Velzy and crew taught me the rapids, how to read them, and how to find my way through them safely, and hopefully having some fun while doing so. Classes available for all levels.
THEY GEARED ME UP.
Appomattox River Company has been suiting up paddlers for decades, and I was just one more who they served properly for this epic journey.
