I'm looking to see if there are any paddling groups or people in general in the central Ohio area? I'm getting into kayaking, with the eventual goal of running the Gauley in the next few years if my skills get to that level. I do recognize the limitations of ohio and whitewater so I'll likely be getting a crossover first. Currently I'm leaning towards the Jackson Traverse while I research boats.
I'm east of columbus and work a rotating schedule so I do often have middle of the week days off.
I've seen the cinci paddling yahoo group and wondered if there were others out there?
