Shane had a funny series of pictures of Otter and I paddling on the Chattooga.

Here is the whole post by Shane Shaneslogic a kayak blog
Otter is still pretty reserved about it. He is not interested in rolling or dealing with a skirt. He spent half the way from Carbondale to Glenwood in the raft yesterday and half in his boat. After bobbing through the big waves at the bottom of Cemetery, he said "The water felt like iron I was pounding." We had a great time finding "creek routes" on the sides and "rock routes" when he would dry out. He scared the crap out of me by trying to splat.
