Maybe that Saturday Night Live skit with Chris Farley living out of his van down by the river left too much of an impression on me….

My current home is a 25-year old pickup truck parked by a river with an extensive quiver of kayaks strapped on top.

I am a professional kayaker chasing my dream, big waterfalls, unexplored canyons, gorgeous landscapes, and a cold beer at the take out. These dreams have taken me to almost every state, across the globe, and to the hospital.

Standing on the top of a 60-foot waterfall and looking down at the landing zone is terrifying for most people. The difference is I have fear it's just that I truly enjoy it.

Stay tuned for stories of near misses, gorgeous landscapes, international locations, and living in a truck.

And tune in now…to this live video.
