I live in Taos, NM and looking for partners to packraft with. I’d be fine with driving to meet up in the region - anywhere in and around NM, AZ, CO, UT. If you live in Durango, Cortez, or Pagosa I am passing through your towns all the time!
I would consider myself an intermediate paddler. I started out in a duckie and then transitioned to packraft about 3 years ago. Content in Class 3 and willing to run some Class 4, but usually pretty careful and selective about what harder stuff I do. I’ve done some multi-day PR trips but still mostly day outings. Above all I’m looking for partners who want to do multi day trips and in particular some rivers further north. I do love getting out in the wilderness! Still would be killer to paddle new rivers in day outings.
I have about 20 years of backpacking, climbing, backcountry skiing, and canyoneering experience and it would be choice to combine any with packrafting. I have a particular fondness for good food on trips, and love to cook. Also won’t shy away from a good hot spring.
