Have fun and follow the water... those are our mantras for the week! We will be starting off on the Cheoah River in North Carolina (it is possible to portage the class v sections). In the past, we've paddled the Ocoee, Nolichucky, Chattooga, Spring Creek, Big Laurel, French Broad, Maury, Gauley, Meadow, Cranberry, Potomac-Kitzmiller Section... We will be explorers! Maybe we will find a new river none of us have paddled. Where we go and what we paddle after the Cheoah will be weather dependent; we will attempt to keep this in the class 3/4 range. Ultimately, many of us will end up at the Stoneycreek Rendezvous and join our friends. This trip will be a combination of creeks and play rivers; camping and staying in motels; eating out and cooking in camp. Due to limited cell phone coverage in some areas, we will be staying together as group (to the extent possible)... This is a participatory trip- we will take everyone's input on food, lodging, rivers and make the best decisions possible; we will sometimes ask you to research and pay for camping/motel rooms so that no one person is carrying all the costs on his/ her credit card. And again, our goal is to have fun.
