Jeremy Quant has been on the river since before he could walk. He has paddled flatwater rivers and lakes from Ontario to the Everglades, as well as whitewater rivers and creeks in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee up to Class 5. His adventures have also taken him mountaineering in the Cascades, New Hampshire, Mexico and Ecuador, as well as a solo attempt on Denali in 2008. He is a certified Wilderness First Responder and is trained in AIARE Level 1 Avalanche awareness and rescue. For the past several years, when not on the water he is probably touring and adventuring on his motorcycles.
