Re: Mather Gorge (near DC)

Or hike up the C&O canal and put in right below the falls. Same for Little falls

Re: Southeast US

Brandon, I did the obed this spring. I parked at the campground at nemo, hiked the Cumberland trail to daddy's creek and floated back down. I was underwhelmed with the whitewater, but flows were around the minimum recommended. Hiking was awesome with lots of elevation change, beautiful wild flowers,...

Re: Virginia? Ocean?

I'm just north of Richmond but used to live near Yorktown. Big water with wind down there. Great place for a sea kayak or SOT for fishing and exploring the marsh. Alpakas are sturdy, but oyster shells would be a constant danger. All the rivers cross the fall line (basically where 95 crosses them) an...

Feathercraft Bolder

I've seen relatively little info about the feather craft Bolder self bailing pack raft anywhere. Who uses one? I have an 09 alpacka llama with cruiser deck and am ready to upgrade. I routinely paddle class III and am doing a bit of IV, which I hope to do more. THe cruiser deck leaves a lot to be des...

Re: Packrafting Wyoming's Wildest Corner

I didn't have bear spray and the camp host was out looking for some lost horses. She insisted that I take hers (maybe she heard my singing and didn't want that noise pollution in the valley) and leave it at her campsite when I came out.

Denali Llama and paddle

Old style green denali llama with cruiser spray deck. Thigh straps and modified seat back added (original seat back removed). Two additional strap plates installed (one between knees, one behind seat) to strap down gear. Boat got a fish hook (barbless fly) pinhole in it two years ago. I field patche...

Re: Packrafting Wyoming's Wildest Corner

Was that your red van at Turpin Meadows? I did the North Fork Buffalo and the camp host said a group of packrafters had gone up to run a bunch of rivers.

Staying in the seat with thigh straps

I have a 2010 model llama with spray deck. I have added thigh straps and velcroed my seat in about 8 inches forward of the original position as most have suggested. I'm very happy with the response and control I now have. I can roll it about 50% of the time. I find that I generally slip rearward off...
