NZ Jan/Feb 2018

Post by GeoJay » Sat Nov 18, 2017 3:16 am

I plan to travel to New Zealand in January/February. For part of my visit there I want to organize a packrafting trip(s) or join an already planned packrafting trip(s). Nothing specific yet, so I am open to options.

I am experienced, having done numerous wilderness trips either backpacking, paddling, or packrafting.

I'd like to find some great people to have fun with. If you already planned a trip in NZ, I'd love to join. Or if you are looking to join another packrafter in NZ, I'd be happy to help plan a trip.

Hey Jay,

I am also planning a trip to New Zealand during that time (January-March). I'd like to packraft and/or hike most of the time so if you wanted to meet up for a trip or two send me a PM. I've never been to New Zealand but I've done a fair amount of packrafting in the Yukon and Alaska and I would be keen to meet up with likeminded individuals.

I am going to be travelling in NZ from Jan 23 to March 14, and I'm bringing my Alpackaraft (Fjord explorer) to do as much exploration as I can! I especially want to do the Whanganui River Journey (Sometime early Feb ideally) and a ton of stuff in Fjordlands National Park (end of Feb into March). I am a Park Ranger here in the US with the National Park Service, and an EMT-Basic with a lot of wilderness experience. Although I'm quite capable of going solo for a lot of this stuff, I think planning would be a bit easier with other people especially when it comes to logistics and safety concerns. Please private message me if any of this sounds good to you!
