Hi, I am getting more and more bitten by the river bug. I’ve taken my packraft to utah for some epic trips down the green, colorado, and escalante rivers, but that’s once a year and i’m looking for trips closer to home. I’ve so far done cache creek (like everyone) and the middle fork of the eel (like very few people). both excellent trips, and now i’m wanting to hit up more whitewater in my packraft.
Anybody else? If you’re in the bay area and you have a packraft let’s talk! I’d love to hear some of your favorite local routes, maybe we can hit some up on a weekend. i love the prospect of doing a fully supported wilderness trip with packrafts too. I’m very comfortable on class II and III, can handle some class IV, haven’t yet tried class V but if you’re standing on the shore with a throwrope and can loan me a helmet i’m all about it.
here’s one smaller run on the eel river i did last may:
