where's Waldo photo -- mine is the Jeep with the blue Rapid Fire on the roof, Hint: it has a bright Bag Lady boat cover on it so the boat stands out in traffic.

Honda Element is a good shuttle vehicle, we have a 2008 AWD and we can put lots of gear in that thing!!

Here are some with our kayaks, not our canoe, on the SportsRig trailer.
Mount Rainer and Northern Wisconsin in the snow.

How has your experience been with that trailer? I almost bought that brand to tow behind my Mustang convertible years ago.

Hi Glenn.
The SportsRig has been wonderful: good gas mileage, the boat rides securely and the peace of mind in windy conditions is what I like best.
The one we have now has many long trips on it and needs some replacements (a shock and tires to replace the originals). It over ten years old and we have only replaced the hub bearings. Instead of putting money into this one, we have a new one on order and are going to sell this one.
Thanks.

Currently on the way to paddle and hike around Lake Powell in southern Utah to escape the world for the next 3 or 4 weeks. This is our normal campsite after the 11 hour drive from montana

Same here, but ours is automatic AWD. maybe a bit under powered if you ask me, but awesome usable inside space!!

Does this count? My Mohawk 13 solo on its dolly wheels. I was transporting it about 1.5 miles back to the truck, after a morning fishing my local river.
