Hello, Ryan! I mentioned on a folding kayak forum that I had a passing dream to one day four-wheel until the terrain forced me to stop, then backpack from there until the water forced me to stop; then travel on the water to . . . wherever. The immediate response was basically "scratch the water part because even an inflatable would be to heavy to pack." As fate would have it (or, perhaps, Roman Dial or you were in deep meditation and I caught a wave) I clicked on the Backpacking Light site and saw the word "packrafting." Bingo!! Ordered the book today . . . and thanks!
