On May 14, 2010 Moe Witschard and Forrest McCarthy flew into Schaffer Meadows Landing Strip on Montana’s Middle Fork of the Flathead River.
Equipped with packrafts, Moe and Forrest hiked 20 miles further up the River to the confluence of Strawberry and Gateway Creeks. They then spent 3 days descending the 48 miles to Highway 12.
When they began their trip the Middle Fork gauge in West Glacier was running at 2,700cfs. Three days later when they finished their float the Middle Fork gauge was running over 9,000cfs.
Due to levels of high water and low testosterone they portaged sections of Three Forks, 25 mile Rapid and all of Spruce Park.
