Two Podcasters Catch up with Sarah & Thor Tingey to Discuss Everything from Conservation to the Origins of Packrafts

DIY Alaska caught up with our busy owners Sarah and Thor Tingey at the 2018 Backcountry Hunters and Anglers Rendezvous. Topics of discussion include the birth of Alpacka Raft, the contrast of hunting and other outdoor sports, the black sands of the southern coast of the Alaska Peninsula, caribou packraft hunting in Alaska, and more! Check out the podcast, “#005 Packrafting and Zorbing with Thor and Sarah Tingey and Dustin Coy.”

Emory Ronald of the By Land Podcast published Episode 29, “Packrafting With Alpacka Raft,” on May 6th. He wrote: “Thor and Sarah Tingey are the folks behind Alpacka Raft. If you’re not familiar with the company, it’s important to know that it’s a leader in the industry of Packrafting. Thor goes way back with the company to the very beginning when it was just him and is Mom creating lightweight portable rafts for people making treks across the landscapes of Alaska.”
