I'm the organizer for a backpacking club down the road in Richmond, VA and we are planning an overnight canoe trip May 8th on either the Shanendoah or Rappahannock rivers.
Here's the link to the meetup:
I'm trying to decide between the relaxed float down the shanendoah vs. the adventure of low-class rapids on the rappahannock. Both offer nice camping opportunities along the bank and a nice two-day float. Anyone have any comments?
