Forum rules
TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Im obviously completely clueless when it comes to packrafting. I always thought they were a pack that converted into a blow up kayak/canoe. Bit disappointed to learn I need to have a pack as well! :lol: :oops:

But seriously someone should attach some shoulder straps on these things and make it so you can carry stuff. That way all you would need is a dry bag.

Does this belong in the ultra light forum crazy ideas section?

Good link for those who don’t own one.

Whilst mine are the older Alpackas, without the extended tail, we have had a huge amount of fun in them over the last 10yrs. They add another wonderful degree of enjoyment to a trip, and they are also extremely comfortable to sleep on (upturned). They also make good camp seats (again, upturned).

I had a quick look at the site, but the rental rates require an “enquire” - any idea how much a day they are?
