Our raft has finally arrived

Our raft has finally arrived. Due to the mudslide in the snake river canyon we have been unable to get to Rendezvous River Sports to get our raft. Heck we most likely won't see the river for some time!

But our new Aire in the living room and we are about to put the floor in. Photos to come later.

I found out PVC is cold. We put a few blankets on the floor and then all piled in for the adventure. You are right, I didn't sleep so well at all and wished I would get up and go to my bed. But I stayed with my little son and we woke up in our raft. I can get a better sleep tonite.

The raft is huge!!! I am wondering if I bought too much raft? It is an 156 aire.

Yeah I know what you mean- I just got my 143D and had it inflated in my living room. I kept looking at it thinking- Damn that thing is huge!!!!

When i blew up my new JPW tubes in my living room they seemed massive!

Won't seem so big outside.
Gongrats on finally getting your hands on a boat.... Best money your family ever spent.

With four people ( it looks like you have at least two sons) it is not too big. When you get loaded up for your first multi day trip you will be thankful for the size.

Congrats.

You can't go wrong with an Aire raft. Their customer service is second to none.
Also, if you ever float the Grand Canyon, your 156R won't seem so huge....

Is there such a thing as "too big to fail"? Just because you can fit the kitchen sink doesn't necessarily mean you need to bring it
