    Alright so memorial day weekend is coming up and a bunch of us are going camping on the river and we are trying to come up with some funny "float" options for floating down the river...

    I found these food safe 55gal plastic barrels for cheap, I think those might be a good starting point.

    Was also thinking about a inflatable shamu dog sled thing but I don't know how well that would work.

    and then of course there is always the inflatable sex doll...

    Any ideas?

    when i was in middle and high school we used to use 55 gallon drums to make pontoons and stuff like that. we'd use scrap wood, bamboo, what ever. just make sure you seal them up good. hell we had a trolling motor on it one time. . . i know a guy that built a custom drop down frame around his four wheeler with 55 gallon barrels to do the same thing. worked pretty good. didn't steer well. i would also advise a trolling motor for that too.

    This is the river we float down:

    Normally we all just posse up with dingys, mattresses, tubes. We have a small boat for a cooler, and a small boat for empties and garbage. Bring rope to tie the watercraft together.
