Why did you decide to join this group?

I am always looking for more paddling opportunities. With good whitewater being so dependent on rainfall, sometimes we need to hit the river on very short notice, so it's nice to have a group of people that are interested in seizing the day.

What would you say your experience level is?(we like all levels, but it may help us target events)

I am an intermediate paddler who continually paddles above my experience level. I am lucky to live very close to the Cartecay and I paddle it regularly, particularly when heavy rains make it crazy fun. I have paddled Chattooga sections 3 and 4 quite a few times; that's really my favorite river.

What type of paddling do you typically do?(flatwater, whitewater, sea)

I am usually only interested in whitewater but if the scenery is pretty and woodsy I can make an exception.

How often do you typically paddle?(once a month, once a week, etc)

I paddle at least once a week during warm weather, a couple of times a month during winter. I am trying to increase that. :-)

Would you participate in social events with this group, even if paddling wasn't involved?

Perhaps. I am way up in North GA.


I am a fairly serious kayaker. Once you get that whitewater all over your body it can become an addiction.
