Plans are already in the making for several trips this season, and I will be making a much better attempt at blogging more frequently this season. I have been in contact with the great folks at Rhode Island Canoe and Kayak Association about leading some flat water trips this season with their group. After speaking to the group this past fall about kayaking videography and the use of d...

I went to work this morning around 6 am, and spend the day looking out the windows as the clear blue sky brought in the warm spring sun. The temperature was climbing all morning. By the time my shift was over and I was walking out to my car, it almost felt like a summer day in July. Obviously with weather like this, you all know what was stirring around in my mind as the minutes were...

Yes, that is right. It is February 23rd, days after snow, a few days till it snows again and it was 60 degrees! How could Des and I not pack up and get on the river? Ironically we were planning on going to Lake Rico, but when we got there the lake was still frozen. It was disappointing but I knew that the Taunton River would be thawed by this point, and the end of Nemasket usually tha...

As 2016 comes to an end I wanted to try something new and take a look back at this season’s expeditions to review the great paddling trips I had. Unless the stars align and I get one more trip in this season I can proudly say I put in 30 trips and created 25 videos in 2016. We hit up a few new waterways,finally had a chance to get a big crew together for two big group trips, got some...

Good day everyone. I know I haven't been blogging lately, but there is nothing to worry about. There have been many trips since the last post and now that I have a little more free time I will be uploading all the trip blogs that I have yet to post. It was a great season and we have put in 9 more trips since my last blog post. I will probably have a few more before I have caught up on...

Today I was heading out alone and decided to not bring the GoPro, but I switched it up and brought the Canon to take some pictures instead. Starting at the park, it is a quick paddle before you pass under the the bridge from Rt 24 and get into the open bay area. It was a really windy in the bay section, kicking up a good swell. I was heading into the inlet on the southern side which w...

Today is actually the day before my birthday and also the day of the long awaited work crew kayaking trip. What a great way to celebrate. There was 10 of us on this trip, including Desmond and I. We were like a pack of howling wolves slowly making our way down stream. The animals must have been a little thrown off as they scurried for their lives from this screaming group coming towar...

Desmond and I couldn’t decide where today's trip would be. Even last night before bed I still wasn’t sure what to do. I woke up early this morning. Before Desmond and after a cup of coffee, I had more or less decided where we would go: the upper section of the Nemasket River. I had made this trip last summer with Desmond and accidentally deleted most of my video from the trip. We hadn...

It was sunny and hot today when we first drove in to the put in for the river. The temperature was around 80 and the hot season was well at hand when we both climbed into the kayak. We took a quick break under the bridge while we soaked in the cool breeze coming across the lake just downstream from us. It was going to be a while before we could get out of the sun, but after a few minu...

We went back to Lake Rico today. Des thought it would be a good idea, and Jocelyn was coming along for the ride. This lake is a great place to go for people who have never been. I know I have said it dozens of times here but in my personal opinion Lake Rico is probably one of the best lakes to kayak in southeastern Massachusetts. It has so many options, and spending four hours there t...
