    Hi Jill...that's a good thought, about waiting till the river drops a bit. I was on it about 2 months ago and it was down, but I'll betcha the freshet has brought it way up. I've gone down to the Fraser and it's an okay paddle. There's a nice beach for a lunch about 1/2 way to the Fraser. I...

    Looking for a new stove

    I use one of the Coleman white gas units. Small with the fuel tank under the burner. Heats like the dickens, good fuel economy and turns down to a nice simmer. Mind you...my barge is not short of room. Gary Haupt
