    I can see where it would be a problem. We just want to take a sixer and relax but I'm sure there's plenty of a holes that get hammered and leave emptys and trash all over.

    Let me know if you decide to do the Saluda. Wal-Mart has well made rubber tubes with thick rubber that are perfect... $10.99.

    So here is the deal... My brother in law and I (along with some friends) are planning a fish-n-float Saturday on the Saluda. We plan to put in at Saluda shoals and paddle up to the first rapid for some trout/small mouth fishing. After fishings tapers off in the heat we will paddle up to the dam, crack some beers and float back down. It will be a good time for sure. Plan on bringing a canoe or kayak. PM me for exact times as they have not solidified quite yet.

    May be a drive for ya but me and some buddies went up to Cherokee, NC two weeks ago and went tubing and hit up the casino. Awesome trout fishing (stocked weekly by the Cherokee folk with browns brookes rainbows and even palominos) plus the tubing outfit will indeed drop you off up stream and pick you up down stream (3 hour flout but can be longer if you choose). we took along a cooler full of adult beverages of course with no problem. It was only 10 bucks a tube to!!
