Readers Write:

Last summer, my husband and I took our Uniflight to explore the areas North of Desolation Sound. I was very worried about the passage through Hole in the Wall and Yaculta Rapids. My husband used Ports and Passes to plan our transit time but I still couldn't sleep the night before. It turns out that I had nothing to worry about. He followed your advice and the trip was fantastic. Thanks for your great book!
