Summer is gone. Fall begins. The creative processes flow more during the cold months. Final edits of “Andrea Knepper: Paddling in Spite of the Ordinary” are processing with help from some Chicago writers acting as story mentors. Summer was busy with kayak coaching at Door County Sea Kayak Symposium, SUP paddling, family backpacking, and helping lead a Team River Runner vet kayak trip to the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior.
