Alright, one more option. Basel, Switzerland. Year round boatin'. The Birs flows right through the middle of the city (like Richmond) and dig this: the city did a 10 million dollar reclamation project on the river to bring back the beaver. They took out all the low-head dams. The head engineer on the project was a long time paddler and turned the whole river into an absolute play paradise. It's rain dependent, but fortunately we get enough of that.
That's for starters. We've also got the Black Forest about 1/2 an hour away and it's holding some beautiful creeks: The Alb, Pragbach (google it) Murg, Wehra, Ibach, etc.
If that's not enough you've got the Bremgarten wave / hole combo about 3/4 of an hour away. It's the site of quite a whitewater fest in the Spring. The flows go for about 6 months a year.
But wait, that's not all. You've got the frickin' ALPS in your backyard. Literally hundreds of rivers and creeks to choose from.
Yes sireeeeee. It's good to go! And the economy, well damn if they don't pay you what you're worth. Now all you've got to do is go and find yourselves a Swiss bride or groom and join the party.

Virginia is for LOVERS. (an old TV add)
West Virginia is for KAYAKERS!!!!!

West Virginia & Western Maryland are truly great places to be a kayaker. I was very saddened when I had to leave CO a year ago, but the ever-present waters of the east have eased my pains. There's great things to do in CO, and greater things to paddle in WV!! Been paddling almost every week since.

....just have to put the skiing behind you. But ya'll know skiing on the est just isn't the same. That's OK, not time when there all this water.

Just my 1 cent
