About the Author
The movement of water has always amazed Terry Wilks. As a kid, he spun around on many Michigan lakes in his own personalized painted inner tube.
He swam in Ocqueoc Falls… went behind Tahquamenon Falls and under Lower Tahquamenon Falls… canoed the AuSable River, even in the winter, as mini icebergs floated along… paddled his kayak to a campsite on the river and watched paddlers in the AuSable River Canoe Marathon race go by… took a raft down multiple white-water rivers in the Eastern and Southern U.S… and hitchhiked to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park a few times in his mid-twenties.
Wilks belongs to the Smoky Mountain Hiking Club and the TV Hikers Club. He took up rock climbing and white-water kayaking and became a rock-climbing instructor with an outdoor club called Solar. He paddled and climbed in the Midwest, East, and South United States and also Canada. He took white water kayak lessons and eventually taught some of those classes. He kayaked the Delhi Rapids in Ann Arbor and paddled in the Detroit River into Canada. He also belongs to the Soggy Bottoms kayak club and continues to lead kayaking trips with the club.
