Re: Self bailers vs solid floor

i have a koko self bailer and yes you can expect to get a little wet. If i inflate my seat fully it is not to bad i sit right around water level but i find it uncomfortable so i deflate my seat slightly and sit anywhere from 1in to 1/2in in the water.

Re: Lake Creek via peterville

I scouted petersville road on my four wheeler this weekend looks like you could get a vehicle farther down the road than your start point we could get at least to cache creek cabins if not further. Looks like it could be pretty thick brush. At least starting out

Jack Creek-Nabesna

The plan is to fly out of Northway into Sportsmans paradise on jack lake, float jack creek down to the Nabesna then pull out back at Northway. That or stage cars at both locations. Has anyone floated Jack Creek? It looks like a Campbell Creek without the garbage.

Sanctuary River

May be a dumb question but is it possible to float from the santuary camp ground down to the nenana river. It looks like you can go from windy pass and float down to the camp ground but can you go further or do you have to pull out there?
