Which durable lightweight drybag

Hola PR Communidad, So I am taking a ULA Epic on a 7-day PR expedition this Summer. The included 65L Sea to Summit Big River Dry Sack is not recommended by S2S for submersion. In the past on similar trips I used a 65L POE LTW Pneumo dry bag INSIDE of my Golite Quest with great bone-dry success, but ...

Re: Oregon - Eagle Cap Wilderness - Minam River

I am heading up the Minam on Monday - based on the topo maps it does get pretty steep when you get up high, and there is also a steep section just above the ranch/lodge area.

Oregon - Eagle Cap Wilderness - Minam River

Hi - has anyone done this or does anyone know about this? I have a 4-5 nighter coming up and am considering to hike up an float down the canyon next week. How high up do you think the the river is navigable with late Summer flows? Kayak-related info only seems to exist for lower river.

I also sidetripped it up to Haystack Mountain and floated the lower White River, which was similar in floatability to lower Youngs and the upper SFF. Could have used...

MPH

If I recall correctly my GPS readings at the time, things fluctuated around 2.5 mph, +/-0.5mph...I believe discharge was between 800-1000cfs in early August last year.

Re: Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness - S. Fork Flathead

Most excellent. I did a similar trip solo last August, except went down Youngs Creek and didn't run any of Meadow Creek Gorge. the footage brings back memories and firms up the planning for next time!
