Roger that. That's what pissed off the locals so much after the movie "Deliverance". All the tourists and rafters came in and all of a sudden, folks who had accessed the river for years were cut off.

When I was a kid we would drive our jeeps/trucks right down to the waters edge at Woodall Shoals and camp. Good ole days.....
