Moonlight Paddle with Trailbound Trips
Libertyville, IL

“Thank you for your terrific leadership at Trailbound Trip’s moonlight paddle in August 2013. You are great at relating paddling insights with life lessons, giving us poignant thoughts to ponder while out on the water…and your stone-throwing reflection/activity was spot-on. An added bonus for the evening was when you swooped in and beautifully rescued a capsized paddler. You have a gift for sharing the joy of kayaking and life…and touching women’s hearts. Thank you! We can’t wait to work with you again!”
– Carol Ruhter, Founder/guide of Trailbound Trips
