Thanks for visiting my presentations for Canoecopia.  I hope you found each of them valuable.

I have included links to resources related to many of my Canoecopia presentations as well as links to find the Power to the Paddle book and DVD. Feel free to download the resources and be sure to share the link to this page with your friends. You’ll also find a link below and to the right to my podcast, Paddling the Blue. If you enjoy stories of people doing great things from the seat of a boat, you’ll love the show!
