A widely-distributed ‘zine and firsthand account of floating major American rivers on homemade DIY rafts.
In 2005, a few of us set out on a punk rafting adventure, building a raft out of found and scavenged materials and floating for a week, Huck Finn-style, on one of the largest fastest rivers on the continent, the Missouri. We lived to tell the tale (barely), and so year after year, we’ve taken longer and longer adventures, floating many major American rivers on completely ridiculous homemade rafts. After that first single raft trip, we invited others, launching with whole punk raft flotillas. The experience has been life changing.
