A storyteller and a river guide, Topher will give you an entertaining river trip!

Hometown: Plano, TX

Favorite River:  Saltan River

Favorite Traveling Destination: hmmmm...it's a toss up.  Cleveland or Costa Rica?  Better go with Cleveland.

Favorite Deschutes River Rapid: Oak Springs at 6500 CFS...Wreck Rapids any other time of the year.

Worst Food Ever Tasted: Broccoli, cauliflower and beets.  In fact, make a casserole with those three and I'd prefer a firing squad.

Most Important Life Lesson: The outdoors is a marvelous place...One breath of fresh air, one dip in flowing waters, one unexpected encounter with wildlife, or one miraculous vista can cure all the harms the previous week has done.  It's good for the soul.
