note Do True Dirt Bag Boaters Exist - If so where do I find them? - Specifically interested in SD, WY, UT, CO, NV, and CA.
Hi Paddlers,

I'm taking a road trip from 8/18 to 9/10, starting in Chicago and eventually ending in Phoenix for a new Job. I would love to get some paddling in, but don't have a partner. Are there any rivers, so popular that if I showed up and waited around for a few hours I could find someone to paddle with even on weekdays? Are there camping areas specifically known for dirt-bag paddlers, like there are for dirt bag rock climbers?

I'm also a rock climber and know of a few areas, where you are guaranteed to find dirtbag climbers to climb with if you show up, but I didn't know if the same thing existed for whitewater kayaking.
