Re: New stuff for 2011 from Alpacka!

Jodi, So far I have only been creeking in it. I am a heavier paddler (220lbs) and went with a Denali Llama again. I definitely sit more level in the water than I did with my old Llama. This is nice because I drag butt less in the shallows but the downside for me is that now I have so much more boat ...

Re: East Fork Eklutna

This little creek is getting quite a bit of play this week. Bob Gengler ran it October 2nd right after the big surge and said it was great. Patrick and I ran it today but it had come back down. We put in about a mile above Tulchina Falls. Quite a bit of butt dragging but an enjoyable trek none-the-l...

Re: Echo Bend, Eagle River

A fun 3.5 hour morning. Drew and I hiked to Rapids Camp and on advice from Johnz1967 walked the north bank upriver scouting as we went. We reached a point about .6 miles upriver that I didn't quite feel comfortable running. It was a short fast little section but well worth the hike in. As soon as th...

Re: Peters Creek Canyon

I'm not sure if there is a gauge on Peter's creek. 3 days after I floated this stretch the water had dropped substantially but it's probably still doable. I'm up for round 2 and don't mind taggin along as I live a mile away.

Re: Peters Creek Canyon


Put in 1 mile downstream of the canyon Friday afternoon. Ran to Stoltz Bridge by Birchwood Airport. 3 river wide log jams to portage around but still a nice float close to home.

Re: Resurrection River from Upper Russian Lakes access

Put in by Exit Glacier Bridge and floated back to Seward today. Rainy and windy but great river reading practice. Choose wisely or you'll be draggin butt.
Sweepers were easy to avoid. Not sure how fast this trip usually is, but it took about an hour to float from the Exit to Seward Highway bridge.

Kenai Canyon

Drew and I floated the canyon yesterday and hiked out the hidden creek trail. Skilak lake is mostly open and the canyon is pretty slow this time of year but some great fishing spots until May 1st when it closes. Hidden creek trail is pretty mucky but it's a nice day trip if you're itchin to get in t...

Winter Packraft Trips

I am wondering if anyone knows of any winter float trips here in Alaska. I have been thinking about Cooper landing - Jims landing since I think it's open. Anybody
know? Let me know if this is foolish. Thanks

Paint or vinyl on Alpackas

I am interested in various methods of boat marking. John with Pioneer Signs in Wasilla did the vinyl lettering on my Llama. (pioneersigns@gci.net) It has held up well through some tight rolling and re-inflating. We started with the vinyl as we are unsure the effect krylon or other paints may have on...

Re: Ketchikan/Misty Fjords?

Good to know. I'll leave it alone then. As I have said before, I am new to this stuff and lack the experience to know what can be done and what cannot.
Thanks.

Re: Ketchikan/Misty Fjords?

We just got home from a long weekend visiting friends in Ketchikan. Thought about bringing the packraft but didn't. Regreted it. Saw so many places that would have made some great drive to spots. A friend and I may venture that way next summer and bring our rafts. Ward creek looked pretty sweet but ...

Campground Rapids, ER

Drew and I parked on the north side of the River yesterday (10/15/09) and hiked up to campground rapids. 3.51' at the Glenn Hwy Bridge. Not quite dragging butt yet but it's getting closer. Looking to do some more late season day trips. Would love to tag along if you don't mind a new, less than inter...
