About the author Kirk Eddlemon
(excerpted from his website): I'm a native East-Tennessean who calls Knoxville home, where I live with my beautiful and unconditionally supportive wife Laura, and amazing son Alexander. I spend almost as much of my time walking, paddling, and even sometimes crawling through the wilder parts of the Southern Appalachians as I do in town. I've always been intrigued by the call of the wild, and even before I started kayaking, I spent much of my time picking out interesting places on topographic maps, and then putting a face to a name by seeking them out on foot with a compass and a little tenacity. This drive flourishes in a freedom-based pursuit like paddling, and it was only a matter of time before I realized that a little plastic boat could facilitate one of the most expressive, grounding, and spiritually rewarding ways of connecting with nature! Kirk is a registered whitewater guide and runs Ace Kayaking School
