What’s the best part of your job?
Playing music around the campfire in the evenings is one of my favorite parts of the job. I also love the feeling of being in the middle a rapid with foamy water swirling and crashing around my boat. The mixture of terror, adrenaline, and exhilaration is unbeatable.
