newbie wants to know where to kayak...

We live in Dallas and just got our hands on a couple of Dagger Blackwater 10.5 kayaks. I am looking for something fun to kayak over the 4th of July weekend. He could possibly fly up and I could drive and meet him at the airport. I'd like whitewater without drowning He has some kayaking experience and I've only just recently been on a funyak on the Rio Grande Canyon in New Mexico. It was fun though not very challenging as the water levels are rather low, but I did manage to haul a waterlogged guy out of the water and onto my raft. Anywho, I don't want a lazy float. I would like some action, though I am in my mid 40's. Any suggestions as to where to go?

Well, you live in Dallas so you are screwed. You get on the lakes with all the drunk wake boarders or head to New Braunsfels.

The water in New Braunsfels is low, which is why I am contemplating a road trip to Colorado (or OK or Arkansas), (picking up my better half at the airport if it's Colorado). My dilemma is not knowing where to go... That's why I mentioned the type of kayak and experience. Any suggestions?

No boating worth a shit in Oklahoma.

For Arkansas:
Ozark Creek Information Summary

For Colorado:
River List - River Brain=

For Everything else:
American Whitewater - National Whitewater Inventory

Good luck.

At this time of the year Colorado flows are mostly low. I suggest you go east. Look at some of the southeast rivers
