Transport Raft from Atlanta to Missoula (or other western city: slc, spokane, etc)??
I know this is a long shot, but my raft it sitting in Atlanta, GA right now and I am in Missoula, Montana. I didn't have room for it when I moved, but I'd like to get it up here sometime in the next few months and shipping is crazy expensive.
It's a 12' Momentum bucket boat, so it only weighs about 65lbs and folds up into about a 30" cube, but it's still a few hundred to ship via UPS or freight.
I was hoping I could find someone coming from Atlanta out west to throw it in their truck or car on their way out this direction. Missoula would be ideal, but I have buddies in SLC as well and could just go pick up there. I also could snag it in Spokane, Moscow, Portland, Seattle or other such local'ish northwest city. Just about anything is closer than Atlanta.
We can sort out a fee or a barter of some sort to offset your gas a little. If you're in Missoula I'd be glad to share some raft time, or run gear for your kayak crew or something this spring in exchange.
Just let me know!!
