You are a genius. Good one!!

Does anybody know of a lightweight, rubberized nylon, 1 person inflatable raft I could integrate into my backpacking system? One that won't break the bank?

I don't know of anything specifically. Try backcountry.com I know there are a lot of lightweight backpacking forums as well. I dated a guy who did a lot of backpacking, he knew the weight of everything single thing he put in his backpack. I don't think I even have his phone number anymore or I'd ask him.

Backcountry .com had some very nice rafts, but I couldn't afford to pay that much! 1,500 bucks? These guys must have a heavy duty raft. Thanks for the website hookup though, it's seems pretty cool.

I actually did that to myself once. I was preparing a cash deposit and I had $1000 in Franklins, fanned them out and swiped them all at once with the counterfeit detector pen and they all came up black.

It took me a few seconds to recover from the heart attack before I noticed that I had picked up a Sharpie instead of the counterfeit pen.

My wife's uncle got a phoney one hundred dollar bill from the bank, didn't know it until he used it at the gas station when they checked it. That'll makes for a bad day.

What kind of rifle is this? And what caliber do you think it's chambered for?
