Ampman, thanks. I too am concerned about the flex. So far it doesn't seem to be an issue. Granted, we are not four wheeling, but we have been down plenty of rough roads.

I am just bitterly disappointed in the grip of the Thule feet...hoping Thule can resolve, if not, I may find a permanent attachment to the Ford cab.

Thanks for posting. They got Epic's back there huh?
Get editing, we want to see you in action . You don't see many Epics around here, but maybe more will start showing up since they are making an affordable rotomolded model called the V7. That's what you see in the movie. Epic provided the boat for a relay paddle around the lower peninsula of Michigan, and the organizers brought it to the Rendezvous to drum up paddlers. I didn't participate, but it looked like a good event. Here is short news clip if interested:

John, I do affix the rear rack to the most-rearward edge of the back door, insuring the back rack does not move. Not a complete solution, but maybe that helps a little if you are not already doing that.

Potentially, I suppose you could place a little piece of "non-skid" under the part of the rack that clamps to the truck, to help it from sliding.

Many brave soles did circumnavigate the Islands on Saturday though. Here is a shot I took Friday evening, and a short video of the event by Donal Bray. I did not ferry the Airstream to the island, but instead enjoyed my little tent which is at the top of the hill in the picture. I really do love sleeping in a tent on a windy and stormy night.

Hey Sky;

I've paddled all the Epic Ski's but my allegiance belongs to Huki. Made here locally within 30 minutes of my home.As far as the rotomolded V7 goes- well if you want a ski and really wish to progress upward, me I would not waste my money on one. One of the local guys got one and after a month has outlived it, he's looking for something quicker.
I have a Cobra Eliminator, roto molded ski for real low water bottom scraping river races. It is what it is, If we don't get any rain this winter it may see a lot of river time in 2016.
And I'll try to learn myself how to edit some of my stuff.. or you could check out some of my Facebook posts.

I am seeing a few orukayaks around. Touched them, talked to owners. I'll just say, there's something for everyone. And it's not for me.
Now if I were hiking into no mans land , well then I'ld probably have one strapped to my pack.

I am a newbie. I can't imagine paddling 18 miles. How do you measure the distance. I have looked for an app but can't find one.

Try Map My Fitness. It's free and I have found that it makes very accurate maps. I've even used it to create maps in the car.
