Actually, the prune feet were tender but not crippling. I had two blisters, one on the second toe tip and another between my pinky and adjacent toe, but other than that I was pretty good. I'm ready to go now, less than a week afterword.
Unsure about Forrest who hurt his ankle....
My blog page has another racer's foot that looks pretty nasty...http://packrafting.blogspot.com/
But glad you all enjoyed the vid. It was fun to make. Made it on Saturday/Sunday. We finished on Thursday.
The pack Forrest has was something he picked up at the OR Show in SLC, made by OR, I think. He'd be the best one to comment on it, but it has real promise.
My own pack was an old Cascade Designs pack, similar to the Arctic 1000, but a little lighter/smaller.
My gear list is also at http://packrafting.blogspot.com/
Would love your investigation, comments, critiques of that list.
