Laugh Amazing RR!

Great ride report, I am waiting to hear on how and why your raft got punctured. Hope there was no bear involved

Well, you seem to be in Idaho, so I would go north.

To be continued

So my apologies for stalling out on the RR, but while you're waiting, check out this very well made video filmed in the area I was at. Beautiful ariel shots. I actually stayed at one of this guy's cabins when I canoed the Spatsizi/Stikine.

Go to http://www.spatsizi.com/ and click on the image at the bottom.

Haha, that's funny. I had forgot about that. I just thought I was entering pics on Facebook for a chance at winning a fishing trip; had no idea I was consenting to be a cover girl . But looks like a get some free atlases and a fishing rod out of the deal.

Is there any hope this report will be finished? Last I remember the author was stuck up a creek with a popped boat...

When we give up hope; there is not much left...

But sorry,this is one of my busiest times of the year and on top of that I just developed an acreage and moved into a new half-finished house, so until that's done, neither shall this RR be.

SPOILER ALERT: I lived.

Kids are doing well. Loving the summer (except for the bears that keep bugging us.)

New house is coming along well, but still tons to do in the basement and outside.




My wife hasn't gotten out packrafting yet, but I tried hers out for her last weekend.
