Hey! Just got my packraft early this summer. Been going a ton. My ultimate goal is to bikeraft. I’ve bikepacked the Colorado Trail and 1/3 of the Arizona Trail. I would love to combine both hobbies / passions.
A little about where I’m at skill level. I have a dry suit and helmet. I’d say I’m a very safe partner. pretty conservative if anything. Class II is my preference but I’ll hit up some Class III if it’s safe. I did paddle Salida East to Rincon (Arkansas) when the flows were quite high. I did Ruby Horsethief (Colorado) in a day as well a month or so ago with some buddies. I’ve practiced wet re-entries a ton at the Clear Creek White water park. And yeah! My biggest and most proud accomplishment so far is I did finally do my first bikeraft from Deckers to the Chutes rapid (South Platte).
Hit me up if you’re interested in floating/paddling! My main goal moving forward is Chutes rapid and Boulder Creek (From the park to like 75th).
