North Carolina...any boaters out there?

Im in my home town near Boone, North Carolina till December. Just wondering if there was anyone in the area… LOTS of great rivers and creek around these parts…would be a shame to hog it all to my self.

I’m going to be in Alabama for October and the first two weeks in November. I was planning to make a few trips up to NC to take my kayak to the National Whitewater Center or going up to Tennessee to maybe raft the Ocoee. What’s your skill level in a packraft?
