You’re right about the boat Granger, I do prefer water travel as my aviator shows. Along with my ground dwelling thermal rest pad. Aha the good old days, not that I can recall what was good about them, uneven ground, bugs crawling in your ears, waits a minute I’m preaching to the choir here. What you don’t see is a very heavy 14 ft fiberglass gheenoe. I’m looking to upgrade to a kayak or solo canoe but I haven’t found one that fits my needs or appeals to me. Maybe the folks that bring theirs will let me try’em out for size, as that they must be using them for the same thing I want it to do.
