While thru-hiking has its own magic, there is a certain Tom-Sawyer-esque bliss in connecting place to place to place by river. I joined one of these river rats a while back for a 250-mile stretch of his 3,800-mile source-to-sea descent of the Missouri River. Some river angels in Omaha gifted us a half dozen, and they made all the difference for breakfast. Therefore, items stored near the bottom of the dry bag are going to stay cooler. It crisps up in a skillet wonderfully, and is like heaven when paired with Popop’s Pancakes on the river.
