First -- I love your avi.

I love to white water raft. We've done it several times on the snake river in Wyoming. Going in Montana this summer.

Also been to Costa Rica -- awesome.

Done it in NJ & PA -- fun but not as exhilarating.

Went canoeing 25 miles on the New River, hated it!

White water rafting sounds thrilling and FUN

Love it. I have gone down 3's and 4's and loved it and went down a 5 and thought I was going to die, but still loved it (all Colorado). We went in Costa Rica last summer and it was like rafting in a latte with milk. The water is usually quite cold at first and getting your first mouthful is a shock. If your guide is good and your fellow rafters pay attention it should be a blast.

I love canoeing! Dh went rafting in PA as a child. I was looking up places online. I had no idea they had white water rafting in GA And TN. We live in Louisiana and are gonna drive. So, these places sound appealing because its not as far to drive. Anybody been to one of these states to raft?

Eileen, thanks for the avi love!

No -- never been there. But if you go -- you'll have to fill us in on the details. I'm in NC -- so I could drive there also.

I think it's fantastic -- when the water hits you and it's ice cold. Exhilarating!!
