Its simple. Find your local watershed and see how far it will take you. Dreams of floating to the sea? Forget it. Few undamned and diverted rivers remain. But you'll be surprised at what you can cover in a day. Here's a sample from our kayak on the Rio Puerco, through backyards and jungle thornbush.

big falls ... portage or run it?


picturesque views: Spiders showered down on us when we shook low branches. Squirrels scurried from branch to branch, flycatchers, tanagiers, and orioles...
