  • King Goes Float Hunting or There And Back Again by kingfisherktn

    A year sure goes by fast. As I sit here surrounded by too much stuff, sorting out, bringing it back, throwing it out again then deciding I have to have it before we get on the ferry tonight I reflect back to last September when I asked my two sons if they wanted go on a 2 week float hunt with the head of the clan. Of course they told me YES! Then they asked who was the head of the clan? After I told them Dad, they still wanted to sign on.roud:

    Our first order of business was to pick a 4th partner to make rowing 2 boats a little easier and to help spread out the expenses. Both sons said no problem on finding a fourth. After a couple of weeks of "I really want to go, but..............." they exhausted their friend so I find a 4th after a couple days of trying.

    Our next item on our list to take care of was to find a remote river and to decide if we wanted help in all this planning .................................................. ..................
    .................................................. .................................................. ................

    ... continued upon our return. :flybye:

    Good luck man. Taking your two sons on a remote float? Should make for a great trip no matter how the hunting is. Have fun.

          I am still trying to figure out how they are going to set up the ADA compliant wheelchair ramp on the raft

            I googled something about rafts a few months ago and saw that someone filed a patent for a device that gets wheelchair bound folks into rafts. I had a guy ask me if we ought to load the wheeler on mine.

            Have a great hunt king, looking forward to the rest of the story.

              Just a little teaser.........we made it to Fairbanks this morning, rain, fog, low clouds, more rain in the forecast for tomorrow. We're really looking forward to sitting here for a few days.

              Thanks LU for the reminder, BlueMoose has some 'splainin' to do.

                        I just got back at 2:30 this morning on the ferry. I have a few days to de-grundge my stuff then I'll start some posting. I also haven't recovered from my experience staying in the B&B after the hunt. I'll probably have to start a whole thread & picts for anyone to comprehend what we went thru.

                          If son #1 was involved, I'm sure there's lots to tell....
                          I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

                              You know... I won't even start.
                              I just want to see your pictures and your trip report. You can skip the bed and breakfast!!
