While doing my 46 I did meet a hiker with a prosthetic leg. We chatted a bit and as we departed he was moving faster than I was. I don't know if this was the one he had, but he did mention there...

Update -

The Marchway chair showed up just like the $127 I gave to Amazon this year said it would.

Thank you everyone, for your responses. This has been more involved than purchasing the canoe itself.

Camp Chair

Never thought it would come to this but I am looking for input on camp chairs.

I am a Clydesdale, which in bicycling terms means over 200 lbs. In fact I run about 250. My back is shot and the...

Felt soles with Micro Spikes to put on when I want. I keep 'em in the vest year round.

In my opinion these work well. I have used them for years. I use three straps on the canoe which helps considerably with locking everything down.

I will no doubt be off in left field with this one but I like external frame packs for heavy loads.
