Georgia Conservancy on the Ogeechee!

On May 16-18, the Georgia Conservancy, with the help of the Georgia Canoeing Association, led a 65-person paddling adventure on one of Georgia's most beautiful and ecologically-diverse rivers - the Ogeechee!

Combat Roll Clinic, June 1, 2013

Man, what a long day. I got up at 5:30 am and got home after 10:30 pm. About 1/3 the way there, I carpooled with Jana and Stephen, and a couple of kids who seemed more accustomed to video games and smartphones than mountains and fresh air. I was a farm kid who had to load hay and do other chores in the sweltering heat of Summer, so if somebody had taken me to the Mountains to swim and paddle around in the cool water and breathtaking scenery on a beautiful day, I would have been thrilled! We had a large group of around 20 people loitering around Robert L Weddle's camper, signing the waivers and … [Read More...]

Nantahala 1st & 2nd Timers Trip Report

  The river was incredibly busy for us. Many people were enjoying the Nantahala. The GCA was well represented by many awesome people. Among those were Dan Brady & John Roberts who took time to help guide everyone down the river safely. There was even a brief roll class held along the way. Everyone was working on skills. From learning to catch an eddy to the proper way to ferry across the river in both swift water and in waves. While everyone in our group made it safely down the river we encountered other groups who needed help. Our first encounter was with a small group of kayakers. … [Read More...]

Upper Tellico & Ocoee March 23 & 24, 2013

The trip leaders were Jesse Hebden, Mike Winchester & Nick Liley… and they were AWESOME!!! On Saturday a group of 1st timers set out and ran the Upper Tellico. The plan was to work the middle and then consider the upper for day 2, but given the level the leaders thought it was best to run the upper and they were right. The worked us hard through the entire run and ensured that we were safe. After the first ledge myself and a few others started to loosen up a bit and realize that we should be on this river, others probably already knew that. The day went very well and was somewhat uneventful, … [Read More...]

Tuesday March 5, 2013 Playing Hooky Paddle

It all began with a simple posting in our local  Central Georgia River Network Facebook group that Bryan Bonner is off on Tuesdays after 12 and if anyone could work in a paddle that would be good. After a few replies and messages, we decided to do the Flint River. Tony Butler stepped up as he has made several passes through the Hwy 36 to Po Biddy Road section and offered to lead. This is the section that has the Class 3 Yellow Jacket Shoals on it. I had run this section once before and it was a boney 7.5 feet and seeing that it was at 8.75 feet on yesterday was really excited to see it with … [Read More...]
