Wow Forrest! Awesome, especially that first one. Big water with big boats and big paddles!

So cool. And 30 years ago.

And packrafts saved that river from damming -- how cool is that.

We must put together a trip there for 2008/2009......hopefully it'll get more interest than my Dec 2 run of Ship Creek..

OK guys, this one didn't have any actual Alpackas, but you have to see this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bP1tuP0 ... re=related Redneck rafting at it's finest. I THINK this is the Gila River in SW New Mexico, , it is only runable in spring runoff.

The Wyoming boys are trying their go at video. We have a ways to catch up with Captain Swallowtail and Media Feliz. Anyhow, Tom Turiano got some footage of Derek Collins and I in Adams Apple Rapid on Willow Creek in the Wyoming Range. We will work on a sound track next time.

This video puts a bunch of the steep creek drops together. It's sort of how I feel when I'm running something new and hard: a bit hectic.

As my son says,
"It has a sort of tense, sinister, paranoid feel, where the boaters are on edge and the water's a little too tough."

Re: Roman's recent NZ youtube videos

Post by andrewallan » Tue Jan 27, 2009 1:27 am

Just trying to work out how youtube works, as I have some footage from recent NZ trip to post, and in doing so found 2 videos from Roman D that have been posted in the last month.

Interested to see, Roman, that your older style boat seems quite long (I presume that you're the guy in the video, although this may be very presumptious!), compared to my ?yaks (the mid sized boat), and that you attach your pack to the back of the boat, not the front. ?Why. Given that I'm forever having trouble getting water over the back, as the front sits high without a pack on it, your boat seems to sit very flat ?how come - have you got lead feet???????

Here's my favorite video from our recent NZ trip. It shows more hiking than boating, but that's cause we did more hiking than boating and with one boat it's hard to get boating video.

Here're the first few days of the Arthur's pass to Erewhon Station.

Dr. Andrew asked about how the boat stays flat: first the boat is longer on the inside than a Fjord Explorer (=dory) and so when I put too much weight on the bow it handles weird. So I put weight on the back and strapped about five pounds on the bow too. I designed it for two people. I'll eventually put up our Torres del Paine video and you can see us get in the boat and paddle away, too.

Also, with an open boat I like my bow to ride high as it keeps waves out as I can deflect them with the high bow. I find open boating and decked boating to require different techniques.

Looks like fun. Also looks like you need to be able to quick-release your pack so you can get it upright for re-entry. :)

Re: Youtube Videos from Oz!

Post by andrewallan » Mon Jan 04, 2010 4:10 am

Everyone seems to have gone stagnant on this particular post...................come on! Having a specific post related to youtube stuff makes it so much easier to find them again than having to search through the "geographic" posts.

I went fly-fishing the other day with a mate, and introduced him to packrafting. This is the vid. Perhaps not as exciting as some of the other posts..............but I hope he'll be a convert...............and we seem to need some more in Oz (and NZ..............are you guys all mute???????????).



Off to NZ next week to fly-fish the Ugly R for a week and a bit, and then raft out along the Karamea. Hoping to meet up with Roman on the way out , as he comes to terms with some previous Karamea "demons".

It looks great on Google Earth, with several NZ grade 4-5 rapids (note - not PR grade 4-5, but NZ grade 4-5!) along the way - if interested , check out Google Earth for "Karamea, West Coast NZ", and then go inland 10km, north 7km, then NE 7km, and you'll find the Ugly R, which is where we'll start rafting after fishing it for a week. hoping to meet up with Roman half way up the first "north" section mentioned above.

I'm presuming all 3 of us will end up at Karamea, and that one of us will be able to post on this forum!

My first full year of packrafting ( I did two days on the Kashwitna in 2008 ). Includes five rivers in Vermont, one in New York, and three in Alaska. Most of this has been in previous videos. I got a helmet cam in September, after that I started recording most of my weekend trips. The Go Pro Camera is great but I've lost footage due to it freezing, or accidentally deleting everything. Here's to 2009. I can't wait for this snow to melt.

The New Haven Ledges is not much longer than a mile. The really good local kaykers can do a lap shuttled included in 20 minutes. It takes me much longer. I didn't scout the rapids because the dude with me had done it 30 times. He said there was a sieve. At like 50cfs a bch of boaters made the sieve bigger by shoving rocks underneath it. Not fully understanding the route being explained to me I ran right into the trap. With the adjustment a kayak could probably wiggled out. I tried what felt like a minute but was a couple seconds to get out of it until I jumped out, grabbed the raft, bailed, and finshed the rapid. I certainly have a better understanding of the term sieve and go all the way to the right.

Whilst the thread title is Youtube Videos! I think you'll find the idea is that they're kinda related to Packrafts! You know, this being THE Packraft Forum an all!

~March 9, 2010~
Second day out in 2010, first since January and first with my camera.
In Vermont we are having a slow (thus far), unseasonably warm spring. We actually are about 80 inches below the snowfall average. One storm dumped only the west side of the mountains and in the Champlain Valley (which is odd). We also had significant rain that wiped out the existing the snowpack in January. All those snowmageddon storms hit well below us. There was a day when it snowed a foot in New York City, and the it rained in central VT (typically we are 15 degrees cooler then NYC). Finally we got nailed by a storm three weeks ago, and there is about 4 inches of water waiting for 50 degree weather, rain or both.

According to the guide book "Let it Rain" by Alden Bird the minimum for the Lower Mad is 400 cfs. A more reasonable minimum is 300 cfs. This was below that. There still were frozen sections of the river. The portage in this video is of horseshoe falls which at a reasonable flow has two options. The only option at this level is a class IV drop into a deep hole, it is harder at higher levels. A 1/4 mile of flatwater leads to the heavy boaters take out, and that was frozen.
