There are plenty of Places-to-Paddle trips you can read about under the GO PADDLING heading above under South Carolina. You can choose The Edisto, North Fork Edisto (my personal story) and the South Edisto River. BTW there is a group making a planned trip in just two weeks that is discussed here!
  Don't do the section on the north fork..

above Orangeburg, unless you like climbing over logs and bushwacking.
You won't be a happy paddler!
Ask anyone who does the Black Water River race.

Read up in Places-to-Paddle.

Then call and talk to Scott or Anne. Tell them how long a trip you want and what you are looking for. They are good people and will answer your questions. If it works out for you, hire them to run shuttle for you. It'll be a few bucks but will help keep them in business so they will be there for the next folk who need 'em. They also have a nice campsite on the river you can get for a few bucks, assuming you don't want to spring for the somewhat pricey tree-houses.
