Bob Whytal is a retired School Administrator from Virginia in the area of Special Education and a former Reserve Deputy from Augusta County Virginia. Currently, Bob resides in Bradenton, Florida with a summer home close to the Appalachian Trail in Churchville, Virginia with his wife Michelle and dog Snickers. Bob has been camping since eight years old and involved in water sports since the age of fourteen. Surfing, canoeing, kayaking, scuba diving, camping, and snorkeling have been favorite activities. The longest kayak trip was from Everglade City to Flamingo for a total distance of 120 miles. In terms of whitewater, I have canoed and kayaked various portions of the New River up to Class III, rafting the Gauley (Level V), and New River Gorge (Level IV). The outdoors and exploring new areas to kayak, raft, hike, and camp are activities of interest. Recently assisted scouting a possible new kayak trip with Janice and Bill. I was hooked and thus volunteered to assist in the future. Loved it!
