    Subaru owners: Let's see your expedition rigs!

    They make scupper plugs that allow water out, but not is. If I find it annoying, I can always plug em with something. I bought a 2.4 meter paddle, which 'should' be about touring length for my boat, and body. It cam with drip rings, but if I remember, right, they dont work half the time anyways...

    Our self made wood stove

    Sorry, don't take my comments as negative! I was just thinking of how thin the walls on the bottle would be, and just forgot the size. It surely is not like the stove we have in the house, so a minimal amount of thought towards safety, and this thing will look FANTASTIC at night.

    No worries Jeff! I am fairly new to kayaking, having only used those puky little old town yaks a half dozen times or so. I grew up in Northern Wisconsin on Canoes, performing all kinds of 3 season fishing/camping trips in 2-5 person canoes. Just sitting in the yak in our living room, I am...

    2018 Grand Wagoneers?
