chattooga is in south carolina and georgia. Maybe part of it was filmed in tenessee? but most of it was on the chattooga. That would actually be a good place for some class IV paddling too, section 3.5 to bull sluice is supposed to be pretty good. You go further down to five falls, its IV+, I've heard it called V, not that its that terribly hard, there are just a lot of sieves and undercuts that could kill you.

So it looks like you boys have much more of A-Game than I knowing your albino redneck river flicks…… yes, Deliverance was shot on the Chattooga and also in the Tallulah Gorge. If I am going to live in the south-east I suppose I should get my facts right, eh?
