Where to live based upon river selection

Just curious if anyone on here has put together the best places to live based upon the river options nearby?

I am thinking some where that offers multiple sections of river (or rivers) to run within an hour of town.

Thoughts?

Take Boise off your list. Low wages and we are all a bunch of skinhead neocons. Really a bad bad place to live. No good beers and your skin dries out. Just sayin...

Better take Colorado off the list too. Nothin bunch of yuppie posers with fancy boats, just wait til you see all the lost gear posts when the runoff hits. No good deals on places to live without bars on the windows. Denver sucks so hard you can't believe it, dont even think about Boulder. And you unless you want to catch hepatitis in the South Platte, you'll be spending 5 hours going 75 miles each way to the closest whitewater. place is expected to double in poopulation in the next 10 years so unless you like LA without the cool restaurants and a beach nearby, steer clear. And if you want to live where the water is and also have a job, you better get used to paying 75% of what you earn on a flea bag condo with 5 other guys, 3 dogs, and 2.5 girlfriends living there.

West by god virginia is the place you ought to be. I-80 will be your best bet getting there. easy cruise all the way.

Really hard to Bend OR. Its my far the best place for kayakers. Good beer, Weed, women, whitewater..... the list goes on. second would Portland OR and then hood river gorge. 3rd would be any where else in OR. No sales tax and they pump your gas.. Its freaking haven.

Yeah sure send em all to my state. Hell you can drive 1 hour and be at all the good runs. Plus we have water all year, you can always find a pull off to park in for weeks at a time. Weed is not legal but it aint exactly illegal. Most of the good jobs have left the state so it aint near as crowded as it was.
