Female Paddling Partners July/August

Paddling with the girls can be so much fun! I am traveling from California to West Virginia, North Carolina and anywhere else on the east coast where the paddling looks good. I plan to be paddling there July and August and was hoping to find other females interested in paddling.

I am taking a year off of work to paddle and travel. I like to paddle mostly Class IV, but am trying to step it up to Class V and also really enjoy Class III. I have started a blog called River Chica.

I have long hair and wear a skirt. Can I join? Just think of me as a bearded lady!

get a copy of North Carolina Rivers and Creeks by Leland Davis for while you're in NC and Eastern TN- great book, he also just came out with a guide to North American that should be good but I haven't seen it yet. BUT I would love to paddle with you on your way through CO, I just got here from NC not even a week ago. I paddled III/IV there but its a bit different here. Hope to see you on the river!

Hey River chica, I am sure you will have no trouble finding paddling girlies (or guys that will wear skirts in order to paddle with you) but if you want the name and number, of a good friend of mine, in WV, I'll be happy to hook you up. He's a good boater and easy on the eyes too
Just let me know.. Enjoy your year!

Been a long while since I've paddled over there, but near Chattanooga, TN is a beautiful river called the Ocoee. I paddled the middle section and it was SO FUN! If you are touring that side of the country, I would recommend dropping down there if you have the time.... Here's some credible info from the AW site:

Also visited this place during my trip to the Ocoee - Best surfing ever - SO BEAUTIFUL.

Be sure to do your homework on this place though because there are some dangers here if you are inexperienced. You should be comfortable in class IV water to have a good time here. Here's another link from the AW site with info.
