From the early 1990s to the present, Bob has paddled the entirety of the West Branch Susquehanna River, and more, logging over 1,200 miles paddled. He enjoys both kayaking and canoeing and sometimes camps out on his excursions. He is our first paddler to report all four segments. Way to go, Bob!

Dave Decoteau (miles logged: 54)

  • Cherry Tree Segment (completed April-May 2021) - Dave has blogged about his journey here and here.

Outfitter and owner of Riverside Adventure Company, Dave was inspired to paddle the West Branch with the hopes of offering guided trips to those also seeking West Branch Paddle Club membership. Right now he's working on scouting out the routes and earning his own segment paddles. Stay tuned for updates on the guided trips!

Sue Stackhouse (miles logged: 187.5)

  • Wilds Segment (completed in 2012)
  • Hyner Segment (completed in 2010)
  • River Towns Segment (completed one leg in 2010 and the rest in 2014)

Sue has joined several SGP sojourns and paddling events, some of which have helped her work towards completing segments. She is currently working towards achieving the Cherry Tree Segment, which she began in 2012 with a 13.5-mile paddle from Curwensville to Clearfield. Keep up the great paddling, Sue!
