Thread: Middle Kenai in an Aire Traveler

    Default Middle Kenai in an Aire Traveler

    Wanted to get some info/suggestions/warnings on taking an Aire Traveler Canoe from Skilak to Bings. Want to float this but don't want it to be too exciting if you know what I mean.

    thanks

    The most exciting part could be crossing skilak lake. Watch the weather. Wind could slow you down on the river also. Other than that you should be fine.

    My observations suggest that Skilak blows up in the afternoon. Not always the case but if your floating, you only need good weather in the morning to cross.

    The breeze is nightly like clockwork.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
