Hi all, my name is Jason, and I'm looking at the possibility of taking a pretty major kayaking trip in May of 2009. I'm in the earliest planning stages and just looking for any pointers/suggestions etc. My goal is to start near Salamanca, New York on the Alleghany River and follow that to the Ohio River, to the Mississipi River, down to the Gulf. This is going to be a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Is anyone out there familiar with any of these areas and know of any damns or waterfalls or any other obstacles along the way? Or any places along the way that I could stop for supplies etc. Any feedback or suggestions would be most appreciated! I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks very much!
