  • A river worth its salt
    I paddled a number of sections of Salt Creek, starting at what’s commonly called the “headwaters” – Busse Lake, near Elk Grove Village, Illinois. It’s a 540-acre lake with 20 miles of shoreline located in the 3,700-acre Busse Woods. There are 11 miles of biking and running trails, 30 picnic groves, launch ramps and a new boathouse built in April 2014. 
  • Boardman River undammed
    When Traverse City Light and Power stopped producing hydroelectric power, a decision was made to remove the dams. When I heard the project was underway, I knew I had to paddle this “new” Boardman River.  
  • Paddling with kids
    Children can be fickle, but it is important to remember that the goal is to engender a love for the water. With frequent stops for play, exploration and rest, even the smallest child can be a great companion on the water. 
  • The way of the blade
    PADDLING with Darren Bush
    There are no right or wrong paddles. If you are a fan of big blades for flatwater paddling, then more power (literally) to you. Do you like skinny little Greenland kayak paddles? By all means, use them. Like a bent shaft canoe paddle or a traditional willow-leaf design? Good for you. As the French say, 
    à chacun son goût
