  Thanks for advice

Appreciate the advice and input from both of you. I am pretty set at launching from around the Bluestone Dam/Hinton area, and taking out near Thurmond. The 1st night our destination goal for camp was Glade Creek. I know about the Sandstone Portage, but was planning to run Brooks Falls. Looking at videos on Youtube, I think it's doable. I am using a 10 1/2 foot recreational/fishing kayak (Future Beach Trophy 144) with a Nylon spray skirt and float bags, and loaded in the storage holes with gear. Rolling won't really be an option. A dump in the river will probably mean a long swim, but I'm okay with that. I will be going with 2 buddies, and we will be as safe as possible, scouting, and running one at a time.
