We cant stress enough how amazing the canoe is. That when it is windy you can rig a sailing sytem and use the wind. when it is shallow, you can stand tall and use a pole to go up or down river. With a little skill and the right banks, you can use ropes and "fly" the canoe like a kite up wind or up river. and if all of that fails you can carry them fairly easily on your shoulders.
The tricks and techniques of all these we can show you, improve your knowledge and help you mke your adventures much easier.
