Pack Cats & Duckies: Boatpacking

I'm keen on adventurous small-boat runs and self-support, particularly outside the high-water season. So I'd like to put together a list of people with the same instincts, so we can be in touch and plan.

One of the best trips I've done was the Escalante River (Utah) in May '05– eight days in redrock heaven (see below).

Putting it together meant keeping a watch on SNOTEL sites and studying hydrographs. But the reward was a perfect water level and great weather for a unique run. Style-wise, it's backpacking with a boat. (Low-volume 'yaks and teeny duckies are ruled out, since they can't hold enough supplies for multi-day trips.)

I'm also interested in fall runs on Deso, Lodore, etc. using small, self-supporting boats.

Go to the later post– sorry. This thing spits it out before I'm done with the message.
