My friend Mike Curiak has gotten into packrafting quit extensively in the past year, and recently has been introducing me to the sport. I floated with him once last fall and then last week once again. Besides my Grand Canyon trip two years ago (which consisted of riding on a large "J"-rig) I have no experience on rivers, which has made it all the more exciting. I didn't go "swimming" on the trip in this video, but on a return float yesterday, I did get some "swimming" time. The water is very cold. Next is to strap a bike to the boat and go on a short adventure?
