Its been a while to say the least.
This last summer was a good one. Despite the low snow fall in the winter of 2010/11 the kayaking season was a good one. I was able to get on 16 rivers though out Alaska, which included 6 new runs! I also bought a GoPro HD camera and started a video library of Alaskan rivers on my youtube account (pschauerak). If pictures are worth a thousand words, then videos must be worth a million. Rather than read about all the kayaking excursions I went on last summer check out my youtube channel and/or this video:
A big motivation for me to get a GoPro this last year was that I was watching all sorts of great videos of people paddling all over the world, but there weren't many videos of people paddling in Alaska. In an attempt to correct this issue I started making my own videos. Hopefully people will realize the potential that Alaska has to offer.
Watching all those videos last year motivated me to take a kayaking trip to Chile this year. Stay tuned for a Chile update.
I've also updated the look, name, and URL of the blog. I changed the URL from pschauer.blostpost.com to akwhitewater.blotspot.com, as it is a lot easier to tell people that, than it is to spell out my last name. I'm also checking out the possibilities of starting an online portfolio at zenfolio (more to come on that as well).
Stay tuned.... I might just get better at this........
