What class do you run? I'm a pretty solid class IV kayaker. Class V rafter. Kayaked the Ocoee a few times this year and the Upper Gauley.
The rivers I'd like to run. St. Francis in MO on the drive out, the elk horn, big south fork, russell fork under 500cfs, in KY. Then head south to rock island and over to Tellico are and surrounding finishing up as late as april with the first weekend release of the tallulah.
I am a solid class IV boater hoping to come home with some class 5 under my belt. I have friends in a few of these areas to show me around and a few places to stay. I have a solid truck and plan to tent camp and eat cheap, so i dont plan on spending a bunch of money.
I sent you a pm with my number, if you are serious about going I'd like to lock it in by the end of January to start planning the trip with you, including your ideas and wants to see. I mtn bike, and can barley climb so I'd like to boat a majority of the trip.
