I will be going on a super cub Geo Cache adventure into the Wrangles next week. 5/5/09
One of the items Paul Claus suggested to bring along as emergency gear was a super light weight inflatable.
of course the Alpacka or the new light NRS would fit the bill.
if you would dare part with yours for a week, I would garantee its return in perfect same condition, as I don't plan on using it, and I did, I would replace it if I had to use it and harm it in anyway.
