it was fate
a week long trip on the New River in WV, 6 of us.
5 of us in rafts with tents, fighting the sand and trying to find suitable areas.
Number six was in a kayak and had a hammock. he was set up and lounging before we ever got the rafts unpacked.
that was enough for me. the following christmas i got my HAAB, and that was that.
I've only really made two trips with one, one week in Maine and one weekend close to home, but there's no way I'd go back to the ground
