When I'm not gettin' wet...

One of my favorite places to be... taken by Jason Higg.

I know it's not really whitewater related, but the outdoor lifestyle goes beyond rivers. It's about being outside and enjoying this amazing rock we live on. So I thought I'd share what I'm usually up to on a weekend when I don't go kayaking. If you know me then you know I'm in love with freefall and that I'm in love with the sky... so it's fitting that I'm also a skydiver. Last Sunday my friend Jason Higg. took some shots of our last jump of the weekend... check it out!

Those clouds are at 10,000 ft

I'm walkin' on clouds!

"If riding an airplane is flying, then boating must be swimming! If you want to experience the element, you have to get out of the vehicle."

A little piece of heaven...

we can still see the plane!

I love sitflying!

If you've never been skydiving before, it's an amazing experience! It's a new view of the planet and a freedom like no other! It's also a perfect complement to kayaking. When the weather's bad and the rivers are running, the kayaking is great! When they're dry and it's sunny, the skydiving is awesome... it's a good balance ;-)
