Ah, November. I missed that detail.

Caribou, elk and bison. Must have been an interesting drive. Great pictures.

All told, this has been a fantastic Ride Report.

Thanks for sharing, dude.

Really enjoyed your adventure. It was worth waiting for, every picture and write up. Thanks for taking the time to post it. Not sure how you find the time with your young family and stuff that must keep you busy living up there. Awesome. Thanks.

Some great shots on the trip up, I too envy you!

Now you've forced me to find your other RR's, I've REALLY enjoyed tis one, some must see stuff!

Thanks for the kind words, guys. I can't wait until the snow melts. Recently added one of these to the arsenal:



Should open up a whole new realm of terrain to explore with the W250R...

Ben, you better start pumping some iron if you are gonna lift that WR into that little inflatable, your oars will need to be extra long for you will be sitting on top of the WR ,right???

You could push/ride/drag the bike into the middle of 'boat' and then inflate with your tire air pump. ??? joke, sorry getting carried away.

I am in for this one and it has not even started yet!! You have always had a way of teasing us in your RR's.

ride dry, stay dry,

Hey Ben, is that going to reverse-bail once the WR is in it?

We'll find out . If the main purpose for the packraft was to float the bike I would have gotten a larger one with a solid double floor. I got a steal of a deal on this one though and I wanted to be able to do real (class IV) whitewater w/o a spray deck. I think when the weight is centered on the tubes, it'll float plenty high (though there will likely be some reverse bailing.)
