I will have to check those vids out when I am at home (can't watch at work) I and a friend ran the North Fork of the cumberland back in Novemeber, which was really great, but a little chilly :)

The rafts they are using weigh just 5 lbs and pack as small as a sleeping bag. Check out the link above to the manufacturer.
