Durhamblogger is the culmination of two loves of mine... paddling and writing. I discovered my passion for paddling following the purchase of our first kayak - a tandem Mainstream Escapade in 2009. After our first paddling adventure at Lake Michie, both my wife Rachel and I were hooked!

Since I am an English Major and "frustrated" columnist (written off and on for a local newspaper)... I decided to "marry" these two "loves" of mine together! Hence, Durhamblogger was born!  :-)

Hopefully you will enjoy reading about my kayak adventures. Please leave your comments and let's get a dialog going.

And always remember to take life one stroke at a time!

- Mike, the "Durhamblogger"
