Everyone must believe in something.
I believe I'll go canoeing...


- Henry David Thoreau

Since writing "Racing to the Yukon," Rod Price has enjoyed bringing his tales of competition and adventure to numerous clubs, paddling groups and other nature enthusiasts. His goal is to inspire others to explore the great outdoors and expand their horizons. When he is not traveling to a race or speaking engagement, Rod stays busy running his multi-faceted adventure business in Orlando, Florida.

He is the organizer of the popular Run and Paddle series that has competitors running and paddling on trails and rivers throughout Central Florida. Rod maintains a fleet of 24 recreational canoes that he provides for his races and rents out to other paddling groups. He serves as the race director for several canoe and kayak races including the Suwannee River Challenge.

Rod believes in protecting our natural resources. He contributes his time and money to the Friends of the Wekiva River, a Central Florida group whose mission is to safeguard the Wekiva River Basin northwest of Orlando. Rod's future plans include organizing adventure trips, establishing a multi-day paddling race in Florida and writing another book.
I never realized how important all of my gear was until I stopped wearing regular clothing like sweatshirts and windbreakers and replaced them with warm comfortable items from Travel Country. I race canoes and participate in adventure races all around the globe, from Brazil to the Arctic Circle and need a wide range of outdoor clothing. I find everything I need is available from Travel Country, and always at affordable prices. Whether I need a simple flannel shirt for warmth, or a weather proof breathable Gor-Tex jacket I shop exclusively for my gear at Travel Country.

I need both heavy gear for my races in Alaska and the Yukon, and warm weather apparel for racing through the Everglades. I’m fortunate enough to live close to Travel Country, but have on occasion shopped using their online store. I get great service and pricing regardless of which I choose to shop in. I have purchased from TC everything from socks to sleeping bags and I’ve never had a problem with any of the gear I purchased. But if I did, I know they stand behind everything they sell 100%. Outdoor gear and equipment is not something I want to buy in a department store. My success in canoe racing and adventure racing around the world is due in part to having the best gear, and that gear always comes from Travel Country!
