    My purchase comes fully ready to fish,
    Its 12’ long and all welded rowing frame that is in two pods.
    I can pull the front pod off and then add the flat board to haul equipment only and my self or I can attach it and take a partner with me.
    It should be here in 2-3 weeks, I can’t wait, and steelhead seasons just around the corner and the Wilderness of the Rhonde <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com[​IMG]Grand</st1:placeName> <st1:placeName w:st=" /><st1:placeType w:st="on">River</st1:placeType> and the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">John Day</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">River</st1:placeType></st1:place> are calling my name.
    I love to take time out to float our wildernesses and teach my kids about wilderness survival situations and how to prepare for them.
    It gives them the feeling of out in the wild with no roads and adds the very important thought process to the learning experience.
    We also have fun and fish and do a lot of talking, and I field a lot of “What if” questions from her.
    The last two summers I thought my 14 year old daughter how to read, navigate a map with compass and gps. She knows how to shoot azimuth’s to find a spot and navigate to it.
    I taught her how to navigate at night as well, how to fish, and forage for food in out wildernesses.
    This coming winter I’m going to teach her how to camp and survive in the snow for a week with bare essentials that you can fit in a 3500cb back pack.

    By oars, you float down rivers with it.
    The bras oar locks are just in front of the rear seat and on each side, they look like brass forks.
    The oars sit in those
