Very Cool. Have thought about soloing it in our cat one of these days. IKs can carry an amazing amount of gear, but 22 days worth took some careful planning.

Thanks for the interview.

Glad you liked it! You definitely have to adopt more of a kayak self-support attitude with the IK's compared to a raft, but as long as the gear is compact they can carry a ton of weight. I'm sure it's a totally different story in big water though with a loaded IK..

Yeah, impressive feat but what was with all the gear?One large and maybe one medium sized dry bag ought to hold every thing you need except maybe food and booze.I suppose some is stuff you are required to bring like groover and fire pan.You would think you'd go minimalist and ultra lite.On another thread a guy was packrafting carrying in an 80 lb. pack:confused: kind of defeats the purpose of a packraft doesn't it? Hennessee hammock(or small compact tent) ,esbit stove,water purifier,one pot to boil water for dried compact food,strong liquor with dry mixer,etc.,seems like the way to go.
