Living in the Lowcountry, we've got tons of water ways. It's not where you've paddled, its where you haven't paddled. Folly river, santee river, broad river. Now that I have a paddleboard I'm ready to ditch the kayak to tell ya the truth but I'm not running rapids.

Come out to Idaho, the whitewater capital of the world. Or I guess, down here to Columbus, soon to be whitewater capital of...Columbus.

We hit the Peace and Santa Fe rivers in Fl. all of the time. We are planning another trip to Missouri in April to do the Jack's Fork and the Current rivers. Last year was our first time and we now plan on making it an annual thing.

I have a 19' Seaward Sea Kayak. I go yearly to a small island in the San Juan Islands, WA, and camp there.

Use to kayak in Cape Cod. Mostly canoe now. I've paddle just about every boby of water in Adirondacks. Pristine specially in fall during foliage change.

I've been thinking about getting a canoe... Live about 30-45 minutes from the Caney fork. Any recommendations for a nice cheaper canoe?

If you want a good canoe or kayak at a reasonable price you should look at boatertalk.com. The candy fork is class III thru IV so I would recommend a whitewater canoe with float bags.

I don't really think I want a white water, just something for leisure. I know they do canoe trips down the Caney, I think I just want something to take to the lake or throw some gear in and camp out of...

Check your local Craigslist. Tons of used ones that people didn't use much and wanna unload cheap. They look awesome on top of a roof rack but it sucks getting em up there!

I think so. Alumacraft Ultralights from the outfitter. It's easier just to rent them up there vs hauling them up from IL.

I've got a carbon fiber Bell. It is light and easy to load on the D by yourself. My local waters are the Staunton and James, both of which have great smallmouth fishing

Also had a carbon / kevlar bell, great light boat, but you wont want to scratch it.
