An Idea Posted by: nanuk57 on Sep-01-12 5:51 PM (EST)
I too have contemplated this adventure and have read with interest the many responses. I have an idea that might work also, if your willing to dump a vehicle why not also get a disposable boat, such as an old pontoon type craft like old people and families use on lakes and such. You could carry so much more supplies and you and your crew could take turn standing watch and keep moving. It wouldn't be hard to make 80 miles a day just with the current. The motor would be reserved for avoiding troubled areas.
At the very end arrangements could be made to be flown out.
