The trip is a tough one as you will have to portage multiple dams along the way. There are many boat landings and fairly easy hitchhiking restaurants (keep a razor with you; it is easier to catch a ride if you are well shaven).
The Catawba from Lake James to the bend into Lake Norman is very easy; a bit rocky and rough in the bend though. Lake Norman is very easy for the first half. The second half, once you get to the mile wide crossing, can get extremely rough as the winds whip across the open water. The rest is very easy with nice people to help you out along the way. Call for assistance or help with your route, restaurants, camping etc..(803) 482 3387
