North Fork of the Sun

I am going to be in the Bob the last part of July into the first week of August. Our route includes packrafting the North Fork of the Sun from Headquarters Creek to Sun Butte right before Gibson Res. We won't be on the North Fork of the Sun until the first week of August. Is this going to be too lat...

Alpacka Scout

I'm planning on doing a trip on the Escalante River this spring then a trip in the Bob this summer. Probably the SF of the Flathead. Would a Scout be sufficient for trips like this?

Re: Utah Packrafters?

I'm an avid backpacker but have never done any packrafting before. Is there anyone in the SLC area willing to show a newbie the ropes? If anyone is willing I can rent a packraft until I can get my own.

Thanks.
