Re: Patagonia Nano-Air

Re: Re: Re: weekend trip report
Keep in touch Michael. The keys to getting into the heart of the Bob, aside from 30+ mile days, are a willing shuttle driver and a packraft. Monture to Spotted Bear is a very reasonable three...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Bobwhite Packraft Loop
Aidan, sounds like you had your issues right by the mouth of the White. The main South Fork channel used to flow right past the main outlet, but in the spring of 2013 the channel moved west a good...

MSR Dromedary Bag (w/ hydro kit)
