It's good to see there are still some truly insane folks still out there. I'd love to lend a hand on a project like that. I poked around the site some more, and I'd say you've got quite an impressive operation going on. HUGE kudos to you and your crew.

I really enjoyed that adventure. Makes me think all the dangerous things I've done have been pretty tame! Thanks for posting it. New Hampshire sure looks pretty from Nebraska. I'd love to see it some time. Especially in the autumn. Kevin

I used to check out French River Land's web site quite often and always enjoyed seeing their projects. Sadly the web page hasn't been updated since about March 2013; does anybody know what happened to them?
