Re: Thoughts on North Carolina and Colorado.

It looks like there's a good chance I will be going to russellville. My girlfriend has an interview Monday. One thing, it will be an easier move (distance) than Co or NC lol.

Re: Thoughts on North Carolina and Colorado.

I haven't considered Fayetteville really because she's wants to work with mental illness. There's a state hospital in Little rock that has that as a specialty (Looney pin). We don't want to live in any city, so was figuring could live between LR and russellville . plenty to hike plenty to paddle. I'...

Re: Thoughts on North Carolina and Colorado.

After seeing everyone's advice, I think I'm going to make russellville area an option. Seems like it fairly central to a lot of good Ozark whitewater. It really hinges on where my girlfriend gets a nursing job. But I have told her to start looking in russellville are also. Lol

Re: Thoughts on North Carolina and Colorado.

The desert is depressing. The front range only gets 12" of rain a year. It is barren of moss. The wind blows all the time. The girls don't wear make up. That climate has a leather effect on their skin.(there is a reason why most Miss America Pageant winners come from the South) They don't know how ...

Re: Thoughts on North Carolina and Colorado.

Thanks for the info guys. I'm leaning toward the western NC area. I have thought about Colorado, but I like the concentration of whitewater in the smokys. Seems to be a little closer together instead of spread out, correct me if I'm wrong. Also a big plus about the smokys area is trees. Lol and the ...

I might have the opportunity to relocate to Colorado or eastern tn or western North Carolina rather soon. a little back ground first. I have ...

Re: spring river info

And you are correct. 3'difference in the gauge then what I normally run at summer levels. And like said not much difference. No scraping, water had a good push and flow to it. But didn't make anything wild. Still did dead mans curve instead of the falls. Which was a little more fun than usual. But i...

spring river info

Was wondering what spring river would be like at its current level (7'). My girlfriend and I are tossing around options for a Sunday run. I have paddled the spring more times than I can count. But only during the low scrapy summer levels. My question is, at the current level would it make the rapids...

Re: salado creek.

Thanks roger, for the info. Its the closest white water run to me. I live in Pocahontas, so its just over 50miles away. Been studying the atlas. Looks like there is a WMA butting up against the south side on the lower part of the run. Anyone know if this WMA is public? Its called Cherokee WMA. I tri...

salado creek.

I was wondering if anyone has ran salado creek lately? Gauge says its runable but I don't think its actually a gauge on the creek. So the only real way to check is count rocks at the take out lol. And to folks who have ran it, any advice for a first run?
