I’m a mad-keen packrafter from New Zealand, on the hunt for adventure buddies in 2015 and 2016. I have endless ideas for trips, but a lack of friends with flexible work schedules…
I’m particularly interested in some longer, remote, rugged trips. Also in roadtrips, just exploring all sorts of different rivers. Or having a focus on photography and film. Trips combining alpine + packrafting, or cycle touring + packrafting.
I have a background in whitewater and have a solid set of skills in most outdoor sports. I’ve got personal experience on long wilderness expeditions and have all communication gear needed for more remote trips. If I found the right person/people, I’d be really keen to put the hard yards into organising a logistically complicated expedition.
Places that spring to mind initially:
Alaska (at this stage I plan to be there in August 2015 and have a trip planned with friends, but I’m keen to do some trips before/after this one)
Could also do some trips in the US at very end of summer
Central Asia - any of the stans
New Zealand (ideas for a 2-3 month trip, mostly off-trail + rugged hiking, some alpine, helicopter drops for food - the kind of trip that requires some decent preparation)
Just in case it isn’t obvious, I would go anywhere in the world!!
If your ears are perking up, please get in touch! Or if you have an existing expedition that I could jump on board with, let me know.
