    Anyone run into these guys yet? I saw their 40ft container the other day figured they may be in town, looks like they will be on the Matanuska river tomorrow.

    I think I saw some of the boats on the Yetna last Monday when I was coming back from the cabin.

    Ran into them last week at the boat launch on the knik at the old glenn. Super cool group of guys. They sure know how to plan a trip. Talking to one of the guys, he estimated over 30,000 hours of seat time in a jet boat. Pretty impressive bunch.

    30,000 hours is 40 hours a week for 15 years that's a lots of hours. I'd like to see that log book.
