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 through 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 trained in Wilderness First Aid and 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.
