    I'll third that. I got three kids and have to drag along 5 bikes just for them.

    just the sheer volume of 'extra' junk we have to haul is comical....I can haul quite a load in my boat and I assumend that we'd have PLENTY of room in it to take the family camping...I'm not sure how we do it but there isn't a shred of space left in there when we head down the river...lol...my 'extreme shallow' turns into the 'extreme slow' when my family is in tow...lol....wouldn't trade it for the world though...

    Default Wow!

    Reading through your lists is shocking. As I think about what I take, it comes down to boots, dipnet, penny-cuttin' shears, knife, fishing license, PU permit, rite-in-rain pen (for permit... no pencils allowed), long fish stringer, heavy trash bag, safety sunglasses, ball cap.

    Of course that's all I would need if I lived 20min. from the river

    More like 10 minutes, but who's counting

    Unfortunately, I can't boat on the river anymore (too big of a boat, too big of a motor, and it's 2-stroke), I have to pay an over burdensome tax to Kenai if I want to park by the river, and the crowds are as bad as the Russian anyway. So I might as well live 147 miles away for all the access it gets me.

    Talking Don't Forget

    Kenai Keepers

    Trustworthy has the healthiest stock left; B&J has been restocked; Mt. View Sports has some, The Net Loft has some and 3 Rivers in the Valley has some left. Also Gwin's in Cooper Landing has some on the shelf as well as Boondocker's in Eagle River.
