Tallulah is running this weekend and next. The Green runs almost every single day. You can call 800-829-5253, then press 1,4,2 to get the release after 7:30 or so. AW also puts out a nice list of all the fall releases in its mag every year. It's been unseasonally warm this fall in the SE. I'm expecting around 60 degrees next weekend. Water will be warmer than any creeks out here.
I don't know jack about the festival. I've got too many local friends out there to pay visits to, so I won't be hitting it up anyway. If you're thinking of going, let me know and we can try to hook up for the rivers. I've never done the Tallulah, but I've been on the Green enough to feel comfortable on it.
p.s. Colorado REPRESENTED at the Gauley this year - I saw more folks I knew from here than from the East.
