Seems pretty cool and more rugged than I would have thought

We paddled in everything from rock rapids to thick mud, intense storms, dam portages, and wakes from barge traffic.

Did I mention we’ve also employed the Wilderness Travelers as ersatz trash collectors, hauling litter and other hazards from the river as we go?

After the first two legs (Namekagon/St. Croix and Minnesota), we subjected the canoes to carry more than 5,700 lbs. of trash, including 50 tires (from semi to bicycle), countless glass shards, and dangerous metal scraps.

And the boats still float. With only one minor rib repair needed to date, these vessels are holding their own and proving reliable under extreme stress.
