For a while I have been pondering how one might live a self-powered, mobile, healthy and acceptably comfortable life; and how this might work on a societal scale.
After acquiring a packraft this has gone from speculation to a little experimentation. This is my particular take at ‘lightweight travel with packraft’, featuring a big duffel bag on the bow to keep all your stuff, and simple tricks to make the packraft into a mini-tent with minimal extra gear (the whole thing floats, too).
Don’t expect an account of 5 years on the (watery) road. These are just first attempts.
A few fellow packrafters seemed to like it, and as I aim to contribute to this sort of thing I wrote up a detailed account. With pictures. Since this is my first post here I cannot post an off-site URL; but go to veminra dot net, hover over the lichen on the right and click “Seahorse noocracy: the pacradomus”.
I will post a parallel message at backpackinglight dot com, as I’ve been told it might get juices flowing there.
I hope this is useful. Comments welcome. Keep the groove,
