My rafting experience is thanks to dedicated rower and longtime friend Mark Lewis. I have joined him on the Rogue, Deschutes, John Day, Grande Ronde, Snake and Colorado River in Grand Canyon as well as some inflatable kayak rides on calmer waters. What little I know about rowing is thanks to Mark's teaching.
