Darren Bush has been in, on, or around water for most of his life, despite growing up in the California sagebrush. Captivated first by a girl from Wisconsin, then by Wisconsin, he moved to Madison a few months after his wedding reception. Darren started working at Rutabaga in 1990 as a weekend warrior while crunching numbers as a statistician for the State of Wisconsin, but traded his desk job for business casual (sandals and shorts). 30 years later, Darren's the owner and Chief Paddling Evangelist of Rutabaga Paddlesports.

 30 Years in the Industry: Q&A with Darren Bush
Live - Sun 5:00pm-6:00pm 

I get asked a lot of questions at the in-person Canoecopia, and a few of the staff thought it would be cool if I did a Q&A. So I said I would. I have no idea what questions I will get, but I look at this as a bunch of folks sitting around a campfire except instead of a campfire there's a screen. Favorite gear? Yeah, I can tell you what I like, but I'd rather know what you like. Favorite places to go? I wanna hear from you! If I could go on a trip with six people who would they be? How does my wife put up with the fact she can't put a car in the garage?

Anyway, nothing's off the table. We'll just have a nice chat.
