Planning a paddling trip this winter that has a 9 mile hike in. I'll be carrying a large jackson karma (ouch!) and gear. I have a hunting backpack that's basically a frame that I plan on using. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I need all the stoke I can get for this... hahahaha

scratch that. Hunting pack won't work. Just set it up with empty boat and it started to tear at the straps.

I have an unused Yaksling (made by Yakworks about 6-7 years ago) that is comfortable and keeps the boat stable while scrambling around. PM me if interested and I'll send pix.

Thanks, I think I either need to figure out a wheel setup that I can transport inside the boat (with a bunch of camping gear, so maybe a bad idea) or build some type of harness. I think a shoulder sling setup with 70lbs+ of weight and 9 miles of distance is a bad idea. So far the Salamander setup looks best but I think I can build my own for less than $100...

If anyone has any how-to links I'd love to see them.
