I was going to treat myself to a new canoe to celebrate my successful back operation this Saturday (you have to be optimistic) and so was going to purchase an Alpacka raft (https://www.alpackaraft.com/index.cfm/store.catalog?CategoryID=53&ProductID=66) with which I plan to tackle the Snowy as soon as I am recovered – probably alone, as Della’s eyesight won’t let her do serious whitewater any more, and you can just spend your life waiting around until your friends are free to join you!.
