Intended river - West branch Susquehanna, from Cherry Tree to the Susquehanna.
Freestyle - I've attended 4 classes in Ohio and at Paul Smiths years ago. I have a cedar strip Red River Canoe "Élan" that I built purpose for freestyle. When I showed up one year with my SRT that got some looks. You may remember me?
I am a decent paddler but am surely no Harold Deal. But I do ok.
My wife has a Hemlock Kestrel that Is a pure delight to paddle, and I have used it on a few ADK trips and a few down river races empty, but wouldn't consider it the best option for river tripping.
