The Chestatee River is a scenic class I run.  It is a nice beginner’s run.  There are plenty of eddies to catch and some good places to practice your ferry, maybe even a little easy surfing.  There is a slow section about 2/3 of the way down, so it’s not a good river for a play boat.  We will use the Appalachian Outfitter’s shuttle, $7 per person.  They are very helpful with your boats at the put in and take out, and are really good about taking care of the river.  Their procedure is for you to unload at the put in, drive to the take out, and they bring you back to the put in to launch.  Let’s meet at Appalachian Outfitters at 11:00.  See you there.  Contact Bill Timpone at or (678) 316-3770 if you need directions or have questions.
