Just got this issue in the mail. I’ve really been enjoying your work, so it was neat to see it in AW. I am curious what you thought of the packrafts. A friend of mine near Missoula has been using one to do a bunch of creeks that involve long hikes and fairly challenging whitewater. He seems pretty fired up on them overall. What’s your impression? Anyway, thanks for keeping us all supplied with stoke- keep up the good work! Eric Mickelson, Bellingham, WA.
