Tellico in the Duo!

tommygunn wrote 991 days ago:


One of the things I love most about kayaking is sharing how much fun it is. The Jackson Kayak Duo is the perfect way to share the joy of kayaking with other people.

This past weekend, a friend wanted to run the Tellico with us, but she wasn’t quite ready for it yet. Good thing we brought the Duo! After a little convincing, I got her to jump in the front of the Duo and let me take her down.

Garrett-and-Harley-4

At first, Harley was very nervous about going with me in the Duo, but she still bucked up and got in the river. My first thoughts about the boat where how stable it was. I could correct all of her wrong movements very easily.

Through the first couple of rapids, the I had to adjust to the how fast the boat was. It was like paddling a longboat! We were zooming through holes and flying off of drops in no time.Tellico-Duo-1

We made it down half the river with only one swim, then it was time for Baby Falls. As we sat in the pool above Baby Falls, I could feel Harley’s legs shaking in the boat. She didn’t want to admit it, but I knew she was nervous. I explained to her the line, then it was time to go

.Tellico-Duo-2

We peeled out and charged for the lip. Harley was paddling as hard as she could and I was steering. I watched her fall off of the lip and took a huge boot stroke. We launched off the lip with a good angle. Not too flat and not to vertical.

Tellico-Duo-3

As soon as we landed, Harley screamed with joy.

“Lets do it again!” she said.

I couldn’t resist smiling for the rest of the day.

Weekend Getaway By Lyle Morris

natefry wrote 1129 days ago:


Weekend Getaway

At the end of every week, I load my kayak onto my truck and hit the road. I anxiously make the short, one-hour drive to my favorite “weekend getaway.” This special place is an oasis of the simpler things, in a world which seems to revolve around money and jobs. This stretch of serene whitewater starts high in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and ends up flowing through beautiful Ellijay, Georgia. This river is known as “The Cartecay.” It holds a special place in my heart. It is where my best friends and I met, and where we set up camp for our weekends of whitewater kayaking. We set up our tents and hammocks in a small clearing by the river, which radiates with good vibes. Like hobbits in The Shire, we make ourselves at home. A thick shield of hardwoods and underbrush serve as a barrier between the outside world and us. The cool, clear water of the river flows endlessly through the tranquil setting. It, along with the fire which blazes, eases the mind. This beautiful place allows me to forget about the troubles of routine life. There is no judgment here. There is only acceptance. Here, I am safe in Mother Nature’s arms.

The river features several whitewater rapids just upstream from our campsite. Slick, moss-covered boulders resting in the path of the flowing water have created challenging, but safe class II+ rapids. As the water nears these large rocks it picks up speed, while being funneled to the path of least resistance. The roaring whitewater rushing over the boulders creates a scene of organized chaos. This is where the raw power and freedom of nature can be experienced first-hand. These rapids are where many people fall in love with the sport of kayaking. Watching people conquer their fears and paddle through these hidden gems is amazing. With both hands thrust toward the sky, they often let out a barbaric yelp of victory. The passion pulsating through their body at that moment is what keeps them coming back.

The rapids and camping at the Cartecay are outstanding, but the people are what really make it so special. This group of twenty or so misfits was complete strangers to me just a year ago. Today, they are closer than family. Our bond is unbreakable. We are all from different walks of life, but somehow we mesh seamlessly. When we are together at the Cartecay, the problems of the routine world escape me. I walk around as if a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I am truly happy.

Most humans desire something to help them escape the stresses and monotony of routine life. Luckily, I have found a place only a short drive away which caters to my every need. The Cartecay has given me far more than I could have ever expected. It provides a campground which is a perfect spot for my group of friends to relax after a fun day on the river. The very act of spending time in nature is relaxing and good for the soul. The lessons to be learned at such a place are endless. Every return trip is an adventure in progress. I will forever cherish the Cartecay River.
