Dan Thanks for posting the photo's. I'd like to thank you for your attention, guidance, humor and patience last week in making my Introduction to river paddling such a fantastic and worthwhile experience. I really enjoyed the week and I now have a firm foundation of both stroke/active paddle fundamentals and correct attitude that will form the basis of my steady progress to grade II and beyond. We had a great laugh too! Thanks again and I'll see you on the next course.
