My troop of River Rats (Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts) have been asking about this trip to do again because we had so much fun last year!
We'll be coming and bringing whitewater sit-on-tops again for those who have some experience in whitewater enough to paddle the class II-III section (Section 9, putting in at Walnut and taking out at Stack House, well ABOVE the class IV).
The boats are rated up to 250 lbs and wearing PFD's and Helmets are mandatory equipment (I can bring extra gear). Several of the paddlers who are coming are swift water rescue trained including myself, so no worries on safety.
We have had a high water level year because of the huge amount of rain we keep getting. If by the end of September it is still as high as it is now an alternate trip may be planned or it could even be canceled.
So far there are 3 boats available. So speak up soon to reserve your boat.
Please no one under 18 on section 9. But hopefully we can twist Mechelle's arm to step up and organize that tube trip on the lower section for kids and those who want a relaxing float. How about that Michelle?!
