I spent this past winter exploring Ecuador. You can read about some of my endless summer adventures at OAC's blog. Check out the photos and videos too! I still owe my emplorer one more blog entry from the southern hemishere so stay tuned.

This website has many old archived pages as it has been live nearly twenty years. Bikers may enjoy the many motorcycle related articles and product reviews as well as the helmet law map. Others may like the whitewater videos of carnage or the guidebooks. Still other might enjoy the dirtbag tips for living on the cheap. Your feedback is always welcomed as are donations to keep this information and website available while I wander the Americas.

Some of the more popular sections of the Ezine:

Ocoee River Guidebook for Raft Guide Trainees and Others.

My online Video Ocoee River Guidebook shows basic raft lines through all of the Middle Ocoee rapidsand the Class IV rapids of the Upper Ocoee. Each rapid is shown with different crews and times of day.

Videos and tips are broken down by rapid. The videos of the five trips featured were all shot during a five trip day with Whitewater Express. Check out sooner and buy less swim beer. These lines also work well in kayaks.

Class III and IV fun! Request a senior guide for best results

This play list features guide hijinks, rookies, trainees, and crazy private boaters taking on the big holes and hydrualics of the Ocoee Whitewater Center. Raft flips, dump-trucks, and pins are common fodder. A new episode is posted weekly featuring the latest carnage. Raft guides wishing to avoid becoming the subject of these videos may wish to study the guidebook above.
