Du'Mor' — Packrafting Wyoming's Wildest Corner

Post by forrestmccarthy » Wed Jul 17, 2013 4:37 am



The Du'Mor' packrafting route starts in the Dunoir near Dubois and finishes on the Buffalo Fork River near Moran, Wyoming. The route links three wilderness rivers by crossing three high mountain passes (including the continental divide) through the most remote country in the contiguous 48 states.

On July 6-11 2013, Michael Fiebig, Jim Harris, Forrest McCarthy, Andrew McLean, and Moe Witschard completed the 97-mile route through Wyoming's Washakie and Teton wildernesses.

here's a cool experience that'll make you smile and get a little sad at the same time.

Thought seriously about loading this caribou in my PR-49 and taking it for a joy ride to brighten the mood...but decided against it.

New River Gorge, West VA. July 2013. 12,000cfs, whitewater Class I-III.



Good times on the river. Mostly big wave trains, although I did go over a 4ft pour over at Brooks Falls and got thrown around on a hydraulic ten feet down. Unfortunately my camera was turned off for that. Here's the blog: http://wp.me/p3UCU3-2K

Torres del Paine

Post by forrestmccarthy » Mon Jan 13, 2014 7:28 pm



The Torres del Paine National Park, located in southern Chilean Patagonia, encompasses a mystical landscape of granite walls and spires, chaotic glaciers, windy lakes, and numerous rivers, cascades, and waterfalls. The trekking route that circumnavigates the park's centerpiece the Cordillera del Paine is celebrated worldwide. Packrafts can be used to expand and enhance the legendary Torres del Paine Circuit and allow further exploration of this primeval and iconic landscape.

In addition to paddling the Rio Paine as part of the Torres del Paine Circuit. Amy and I utilized our packrafts to descend the Rio Grey and Rio Sarrano Rivers to the Seno de Ultima Espanza and the Pacific Ocean, creating a world-class packrafting route we nicknamed the "Grande q."

Hiked our way in for the first packraft descent of the beautiful Snake Indian River in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Snake Indian Falls is a 394 foot drop but we pulled out in time. A cold, wet and snowy weekend in June, but well worth it.

Here is a little film I made a few years ago for a local audio-visual show, that wasn't uploaded to the web until today. This journey coincided with low water levels and therefore included far more packing than rafting. I offer the strongest possible advice; please do not attempt this journey unless you are highly experienced in carrying large loads through the most severe off-track terrain. Production is very amateurish but I hope you enjoy it. Regards, John

Just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone for putting together such great videos. Particularly MikeC for the corresponding stories in your blog and mark for some (relatively) local inspiration. Can't wait to finally order a packraft and get out there too.

A weekend getaway adventure in Västra Götaland, Sweden. Packrafting the rapids of Säveån in the autumn flood and collecting mushrooms in the woods of Alefjäll.

https://vimeo.com/115772671

Säveån is an easy accessible river. 30 minutes away from Gothenburg by public transportation and a river guide is online here in Swedish: http://www.bohusvals.se/fg_savean.htm. We paddled the river section between the train stations of Floda and Stenkullen with two major rapids the Kusaforsen (graded 3-4) and the S-kurvan (graded 2-3).

Despite there being a large number of female packrafters out there most of the videos I see of packrafting tend to highlight males in action. So I thought it was about time that I personally made an effort to highlight some of the amazing times that women such as my wife Jen and many of our friends have whilst packrafting. This short video features four women rock'n' the Colorado down through the Grand Canyon...

A short film depicting a winter self-support trip down the Grand Canyon of the Colorado.

Flows were 10,000 to 18,000 cfs.

Music by This Will Destroy You: "They Move On Tracks Of Never Ending Light".

Still pics and a few words to explain the trip can be found here:

lacemine29.blogspot.com/2015/02/finding-flow.html

FWIW, Brad was in a Llama, Roman and Doom were in Yak's, and I was in a production Alpackalypse.
