Pat's River of the Month Collection:

   Pat Reilly is a local paddler who just loves to paddle what he calls "Virgin Waters", streams or section of streams that are new to him.  He also likes to paddle and race fast kayaks and canoes. Another passion is writing about these adventures. These stories have been published as "River of the Month" articles in the Canoe Club of Greater Harrisburg's newsletter, "Streamlines".  Most of these articles serve as stream guides and cover many streams that Ed Gertler didn't include in the standard reference book of Eastern and Central Pennsylvania streams: "Keystone Canoeing".  Some of the articles include tales of "slight misadventures" and usually include a few safety tips on avoiding like circumstances. Other articles address tips on equipment, skills, and other useful knowledge.
