The Secret Weapons: Portage Wheels by Seattle Sports and Wike

Portage wheels for rugged or smooth long hauls

Sixty-three portages! The good news is that a great many of those carries are on roads or wide trails, suitable for wheeled carts. We're actually taking two portage wheel systems. First, the Seattle Sports Nemo Extremo. It's light, it's compact, rated to 250 lbs., and the airless tires are maintenance-free.

Second, the Wike Woody trailer, which I wouldn't trust on rugged, bumpy terrain, but is an absolute dream to pull on roads or wide, dirt trails with its 20-inch bicycle-style tires and aluminum frame. We'll carry it across the top of the boat, ready for use, or break it down to a more packable size. (Nemo Extremo – 7 lbs., $134; Wike Woody trailer – 13 lbs., $200)
