Just run as much as you can, as often as you can! Say yes to anything and go with anyone that's offering. It's all about getting out there man, most people here consider the river season from March to November, hell some find ways to run shiz all year long. But anyways here's some great suggestions-

I'm not as familiar with rivers over on the east coast where you are, but any of the rivers pinkturtle mentioned are great. The Gualey, Ocoee, Chatahoochee, etc.

Out west -
Selway, Middle Fork of Salmon, Main Fork of Salmon, Lochsa, Burnt Ranch Gorge, Grand Canyon, Westwater, Cataract Canyon, Yampa, Gates of Lodore, etc.

Worldwide -
Zambezi (Zimbabwe), Futaleufu (Chile), Rio Baker (Chile), White Nile (Uganda?), countless amazing rivers in Central America, and if you're really ballsy and looking to finish you're bucketlist by actually kicking the bucket.................Inga rapids on the Congo River (D.R.C.)

Some of my most memorable trips have been in the middle of winter, just be careful and make sure your up to it experience wise, if your planning to boat with Ice bergs and Ice shelves along the banks, slush going under your boat sounds real earie, makes it harder to row, canyon walls covered in snow look super cool! Getting flushed under ice is very bad.

Good list!

Deckers has actually been getting cleaner...there's actually a handful of resident trout here and there now believe it or not....and muskys to eat them.

If you want to run Pringle Run....I can help.

Personally I keep a goal of running 50 miles of "new to me" river a year. I'm a little behind at 21miles so far.
