Crushed Ice - Optional
Survival Stories • July 23, 2018
Steve Smith, Adventurer
We chose the best gear that we could get our hands on, including Peli boxes to safeguard our camera gear, radios and satellite telephone.

Many items loaded inside the kayak were crushed, but the Peli deck box emerged through it all unscathed.
