The French Broad Riverkeeper and Western NC Alliance have released details for the Save the French Broad Float 2014. As anticipated, the paddle will be broken into two segments. The first is planned for 17 - 21 May 2014 starting near Rosman and ending up in Asheville. It's great trip on a fun river. You paddle for 10 - 18 miles, get out at a camp ground, set up your tent that has already arrived by van, enjoy wonderful eats provided by the host, and then do the same the next day. Can't do all five days? There's an option of just doing the first two days.

It's a good cause and you'll be helping out some wonderful folks that have been making a positive impact for clean water and recreation in the Southeast.
Last year's trip was awesome. Don't miss this one. And why not also do the rest of the river in part two in July?
