Tim Brink (Timber): Now residing in Portland, Tim is the founder of, and guide for ORT. Timber also serves as the current president of the United States Rafting Association (USRA). Tim is currently employed as a school psychologist and football coach. A bird of a different color; Tim pushes the envelope as a freeskier, kayaker, first descentionist rafter, mixed martial artist, bouncer, and then keeps us guessing by writing poetry, soul searching trip reports, listening to classical music, jazz, and conducting informal â??menâ??s groupsâ?? on road trips which commonly end with a hug at the end of the day. His competitive fervor and at times militaristic demeanor have recently become more balanced as a result of life changing experiences which have triggered an exploration into spirituality and holistic self awareness. Paying strict attention to detail hasnâ??t always worked for Timber as evidenced by showing up to a put in without lifejackets, going kayaking without a helmet, or the tendency to let 'er rip when a thorough scout could have avoided a swim, or two, orâ?¦.three.
