Imagine chasing whitewater full-time in a 170 sq. foot RV with your parents for 5 years? Come join 14 year old Abby Holcombe as she talks about her favorite rivers across the country including; Ottawa River, Kennebec River, and many more and how all these rivers and their communities have left her with important kayaking and life lessons that she will always carry with her and skills that have led her to bigger kayaking opportunities such as the remote Magpie River she paddled this summer.
