Re: California - Sacramento Area

Howdy,
I moved to Berkeley last August from Alaska. I would REALLY like to get out in my packraft, but would like to do so with some partners.

pm me if you want to get out

Thanks,
Bryce

Re: Atigun Gorge/ Sagavanirktok River and packrafter death

Holy Mary that was cool. Makes my recent move from Alaska smart just a bit. But I've still got my Llama and Alaska isn't going anywhere that I know of.

Roman, you made the front page of the NY Times this evening. Congrats!

Alpacka on front page of NY Times

Article here [snip] As an experienced kayaker, I took to a pack raft with little issue. My vessel, an Alpacka raft, looked to be not much more than an inner tube reinforced with a floor. But on the river I felt in control. The craft could ferry across the current. I paddled into an eddy for practice...

Re: South Fork of Eagle River

This would be very cool.
How is the creek looking?
Has anyone looked at it or even floated it yet??

Re: New to Packrafting

I am looking at the crow pass- Eagle River crossing and want to know if anyone has done it recently? What things should I be looking out for? What are the main problems? Are there water gages and at what point should it not be run? I did this three days ago, from Girdwood to Eagle River. The larges...

Re: Eagle River

Local classic indeed! A friend Charlie and I did Crow Pass -> Eagle River yesterday and it was a dern good time. The weather was great from the get go, with awesome colors to match. http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g218/bsmith12/FallcolorsCrowPass.jpg There was maybe 3-4" of new snow at Crow Pass w...

Re: Sanctuary River, Denali NP

I'm looking for partner(s) to do this trip with next weekend. (Sept. 12-14) I believe the 14th is the last day the buses are running. Was thinking of heading to Cantwell Friday after work, camp and then do the hike/float as an overnighter. I'm open to other variations though. happy paddlin' Bryce

Re: Glacier Creek; Chugach Mtns.

thanks,
I did read that. Unfortunately it doesn't mention any details on what caused or how the accident happened, only that "conditions in the area have been rough in recent days"

Re: Glacier Creek; Chugach Mtns.

Some actual details on the accident, like what exactly happened would be nice. Like an accident report like you see after an avy. Anything like that exist in the paddling community?

Re: South Fork of Eagle River

My partners and I all agree that 5.03 (for Ship Ck) is a tad low for floating South Fork, at least the upper section. Despite what appeared like low water, we gave it a go anyways. Low water rocks! (for taking breaks) http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g218/bsmith12/LowWater.jpg This was still a pret...

Re: Winner Creek to 20 mile

Problem solved, take me on your goat hunt!! I have a feeling low water might be more of an issue that time of year than the sweepers, at least on the East Fork section. :?: :?: We definitely were bumping our butts some and it looked like the water was at a higher than average level. You could see th...

Re: Winner Creek to 20 mile

I'm not sure that my experience level allows me to be a great judge of how bad the sweepers were. Given this was my first real packraft trip, I thought they were pretty tame. But my level of risk acceptance might be different than yours. They were all clearly visible and you could take out easily ar...

Re: Winner Creek to 20 mile

I got Posercraft into the water for her maiden voyage this past Sunday. A friend who has also recently been lured by the Alpacka Siren Song came along. The day started as expected, good and cloudy. http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g218/bsmith12/SmudgyStart.jpg The cloudy edges of this photo were no...
