Looking for Spokane area packrafters!

I just got my first packraft (Alpacka Yak) and want to find others in the Spokane Washington area that also want to explore our area lakes and streams. So many places to go within a couple hours drive but need some folks to go with. I’m beginner now and look forward to the lakes and Class I rivers but want to gain skills to eventually take on some of the Northwest’s II’s and III’s.

I am just about to buy a packraft and I live in Spokane. I don’t know if you now have a network, but I am excited to learn. I would be very interested in what you bought, what you liked, and what you didn’t. I’m not real sure what flows back to you in this forum, but it would enjoy the chance to grab a cup of coffee, or a beer and figure out the pack rafting world! I do a lot of flat water kayaking so I have some spots to practice and some ideas of what happens next, but your early experience might be great!

Thanks in advance - John
