    Default Swan Lake Canoe Trail video w/ Alpacka packrafts

    Here is a link to my wife, dog & I's Swan Lake canoe trail outing a few weeks back. We used Alpackas which cut down the portage times for sure. I posted it in the canoe section too but thought it would be fitting in here & fresh water kayaking too. There may be a better way than to post it in 3 sections but if there is I am not aware of it.
    Enjoy!

    I think two separate boats the way you did it would be more fun. They call tandem kayaks "divorce boats" for a reason. I imagine inflatables would be the same. lol

    Great edit by the way!

    Looks like a great trip. Now all you need is a new tipi to light'n up the pack-you can use a parkraft paddle to erect the tipi, it works great

    Nice video. I have got to get one of those packrafts.
    Is that 4 legged chainsaw a pit/lab mix?

    350bull - I would love to try one out some time.

    AKBEE- The vet said American Bulldog, Pit Bull and Great Dane but I agree with you and say no Dane and some Lab. My buddies with labs get mad when she beats their dogs to sticks in the water.
