Drifting on a RiverSports paddleboard, a great way to spend a summer's afternoon.
Like Huck Finn drifting down the Mississippi on a raft, you too can experience the sensation of floating aimlessly and carefree on placid water.
Every Friday (Noon-8 pm), Saturday (10 am-8 pm) and Sunday (noon-7 pm), Knoxville-based River Sports is setup at Ijams Quarry Lake renting bikes, canoes and, yes, paddleboards!
"It's not so hard," says Travis, "Once you find your balance on the board."
I'm sure Huck Finn would have said something similar.
