There's always the Barle.

By the way usually at the left hand end of the keyboard there is a little key marked Caps Locks - it comes in handy now and then :-).

I highly recomend the Teign from the A382 bridge to Fingle Bridge, its still at an ok level even with lack of rain recently. (0.69 today)
There is also an excellent section above from bridge near Gidleigh Park Hotel but you'll struggle with more than 2 vehicles as its poor parking, levels will need to be ideally 1m on the Teign Guage to run that section which may not be happening.
Hope that helps,
Mark

Try the Tamar, it is a bit further west but its a cracking paddle. Several sections available.

Second A382 to Fingle Bridge. Did it on Sunday, lots of fun. No where near as scary as last time due to not doing it in a small boat with a bad back! I was the only one who ran the weir and that was only partly as there was a branch in the steps section.

This got posted on Kayaking the river Dart :) Ouch!

Better than any of the umpteen vids I've watched this week of pro-boaters hucking 100 footers...
