Looking for some friendly folks to paddle with... (Planning a Trip)

Myself and a beginner paddler are running French Broad section 11 this Friday. I have been paddling for almost 10 years, but we're just hoping to attract a few more paddlers for this trip for safety and enjoyment reasons. If you'd like to come or have any questions then please feel free to post below or call or text me. My number is 865-742-1051.

We're meeting at the Cracker Barrel at Strawberry Plains at 9:00am this Friday to carpool. Silver Toyota Tacoma with yellow kayaks. Section 11 is from Del Rio, TN to the bridge on 25/70 upstream from Newport, TN. It's very scenic, has a quick shuttle, is 55 minutes from Cracker Barrel, and is rated class I-III. There are nice wave trains, one good ledge, some rock gardens, sandy beaches, towering mountains above, and nice access locations. I personally like this better than section 9!

Here is the link on meetup where I have it posted as well. Thanks

See You On The River!
