Rafting in the Southeast?

So just got word that I will be relocating to Atlanta, GA for work. Anyone know about rafting in the SE? Should I bring my raft along or leave it in Denver and come back a couple times a summer to see the water?

Let's see, humid climate, Appalachian Mountains nearby, maybe so...

Here's a search on the topic:

What would ever possess someone to leave their river gear behind??
That's like giving up your dog because you're moving.
Don't you love your raft?
Your raft would be sad without you.
Your raft doesn't want a new owner.
When you took your raft home for the first time, your raft thought it was for life.

I will still have it, stored safely in CO for when I visit. Anyway, thanks for answering my question.

It's wet in the Southeast. I paddle year round, about 100 days a year.

Bring the raft!

Have you done a quick Google search to see what's around? You have several rivers running straight through Atlanta. Your raft is going to be mad at you if you leave it behind.
You're like the guy that brings his dog to the river, but leaves him in the car with the windows cracked, eh?

Considering the distance y'all Colorado boaters are willing to travel to paddle (ie. Front range to westwater), you'll have lots of options for water. If you can kayak, you'll have even more options.
