Any East Coast Cat Boaters?

I'm trying to see if there is a group of cat boaters (or rafters) here in the east to get in with, or possibly create a group of such sorts to go on some good whitewater trips. I'm based out of Northern VA myself, but frequently take whitewater trips to WV, and PA. So if you're a cat boater (or rafter) in the general area, or know of a group that already exists, please respond.

Cheers!

Sorry dude, gotta come west if the Missisippi.

Cat Boaters were banned from the east coast due to legislation enacted in the middle of the decade. Hence this led to the massive catboat herding of aught-eight.

Feel free to Google "trail of beers"

I'm not clear on what you mean by "banned from the east coast due to legislation." Could you elaborate on this? I've been using my cat on numerous rivers out here, had friendly encounters with park police and rangers, and have been on national and state park property without any negative responses or inclinations that my cataraft is of any problem. I found nothing relevant to this post when I Google'd "trail of beers" but would definitely appreciate any clarity anybody could give.

You might have better luck looking on the raft zone section of boatertalk. There are quite a few southeast rafters on there.

BoaterTalk: RaftZone

If you ever get up to the rivers of New York, let me know. I am always looking for some one to raft with.

Seriously??? Gosh I guess that disproves the saying that East Coasters really do not have a sense of humor

Mountainbuzz is a Colorado Rockies Kayakers forum. Being a Catarafter from the left coast, the only reason they let me post is because they envy our brew. And west of the Mississippi they probably get my sarcasm

There has to be a good east coast rafting/cat/kayak forum.

Since you really dont have mountains out there, maybe search under GentlyRollingTerrainBuzz or Landfillmound Buzz

You'd think the name Avatard might be a hint

I admit Avatard, ya got me good there (in a boring British sitcom sort of way). Being from Washington state originally, I must agree that the east coast mountains are merely hills. However, that being said... I wouldn't discredit the amazing runs on the Gauley, New River Gorge, Cheat River, and Youghiogheny. Especially since most east coast rivers can be run year round instead of waiting for the freezing your tits off "boating season" out west. This forum actually has a huge number of east coast residents, so that is why I posted here on the topic. Anyhow, I enjoy some good ball bustin' so no worries, take shots when you can get em in!
