This Is Packrafting
Chris and Rob grabbed their Caribou packrafts and headed out on the Lower Deschutes for their first bikerafting trip. Chris made a great film showcasing the trip. "It was fun, humbling, hot and an absolute blast," Chris commented. They also fished along the way.
So you have a packraft, the necessary safety gear and some practice and training under your belt. You’re ready for a big, backcountry boating adventure, but, how do you plan a trip out to a river that you have no way of looking at until you crest the pass that drops you to your put in point?
After flying halfway around the world, driving for 3 days, packrafting 23 miles down a nearby river, and backpacking 16 miles across a maze of desert canyons, we would have to hope that there would be enough water to float.
