I am hoping there are groups on here that would be open to introducing yourself to me and giving me a shot at joining you for a beer or coffee to see if I am someone you wouldn’t mind having on the trail and water for a trip this year.
I would consider myself a beginner on the packraft with some short trips through Canyonlands, Escalante River, Muddy Creek, Weber River and 10 days in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. I love to backpack (I teach a lightweight backpacking class for the University of Utah). I have taken rafting courses through the University of Utah and a 7 day rowing course through the guide service ARTA on the main fork of the Salmon in 2017.
Cheers. Troy Ayres
