Not wanting to cart our gear all the way to the middle of nowhere we hooked up with Nik at McCarthy River Tours and Outfitters out of McCarthy, AK in the middle of the Wrangell St Elias National Park. raftthewrangells.com He picked us up in Anchorage, drove us to the park, handled the Beaver procurement with Don, rented brand new 16 footers, kitchen, groover, drysuits, THE WORKS!! and then picked us up in Chitina (6 days later) and drove us back to Anchorage. Amazing!!
