A very tough read from an amazing kayaker

1997 was a tough year where the kayaking community lost 4 of the best paddlers in the world in a couple of months. It was a year I won't ever forget and also one that will always make you remember you as an individual in the grand scheme are very small. Rich Weiss, Henry Filip, Chuck Kern, Dugald Bremmer and so many other great souls throughout the years.

Yeah, that was a lousy year for our community. Dugald Bremner was a friend and he stayed with me in Seattle shortly before his death. I still think of him and have a beautiful photo he took in my house. He was a wonderful guy, as I'm sure were the others.
