    Ya like those. Pretty cool I thought. I sure could have used one in ID when we used to elk hunt there.

    I watched a show just a few nights ago, a few teams were racing across Alaska, and had to use pack rafts. The rafts couldnt been longer than 8 feet. A few guys dumped them on some pretty fast moving water. The small ones look really unstable.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    pack rafts are to small to hunt and haul gear. Small rafts are not. There is a difference. Also, just like any moving water sport, you will nead the right gear and knowledge. In the pack raft you will be sitting in water, make sure you are prepared for that.
    check out the pumas from aire. small, flyable and can pack some weight.
