    Great use of your system right there. Maybe I will try that winter camping with my skis.

    Nice idea, but I am such a poor swimmer, I would have had one of those life jackets on

    These folks are staff members of Tomahawk Boy Scout Reservation. I've known 3 of them for probably ten years. This was a Mississippi canoe trip that they took, after last years scouting season was over, from source to mouth.

    Wow - this is so great! If I didn't just crash badly yesterday from something catching in my rear wheel, I'd wonder if I could manage hammock sailing on my bicycle?!

    Many years ago in 1971, I was at summer camp for the National Guard at Camp Ripley in Minnesota. A group of nine of us inflated three rubber rafts and floated part of the Mississippi River. The rafts paddled like a bath tub. I figured there had to be an easier way. I got the poncho out and used it for a sail. We went through three configurations until we had one that worked. As we sailed past the other two rafts they began to scramble to look for their ponchos.
