I have the good fortune to work within a few miles of the Chattooga. This enables to paddle a good bit. I have had a lot of hobbies in the past(bicycling, rodeo, basketball, etc)but none have consumed me like paddling. I also am lucky enough to have a wonderful wife and 3 wonderful children who also enjoy paddling. Though it is tough on your ego watching your kids pass you.
