I normally row a gear boat on Westwater, but I bought a little 11' raft last year and we thought it would be fun to R2. Neither of us had R2'd before and it was a ton of fun. Carried a little bit of gear and had a motor on one of the other rigs for the float out. We went big on everything but for Skull and had a blast.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
