Has anyone tried to carry a Coleman? Sure, it can be done, but not easily. No portage yoke, for one thing, unless it is made custom. I'd be dragging that mother too. And if I wore a hole through it?...

Does anyone know if that pond is accessible from the outlet that flows into the Saranac River? I haven't paddled far up it from the Saranac to find out, but I was intrigued.

Regarding the bounty offered by Spike TV, I liked this quote:

Thanks, Wildrns. I figured that it was in the context of racers wanting the deepest channel, but wanted to be sure. Looking forward to a good trip next week. I hope all of the racers took some...

Bait preferences

I spent a summer on a bait preference study on wild hogs in the Smokies back in the day, so I know a thing or two about hogs and what they like to eat. We tested groupings of 4 hogs at a time on a...

I have done some short races (4 to 6 miles) in a Phoenix Isere, and can testify that it is one of the faster 15' long boats out there. It is lightweight and fast, with good glide. If you are good...
