All of the packrafting articles I read on here are in Alaska or in the NW US. I'd like to see articles about trips in other parts of the US, or even other countries. I've asked several boat rental outfits here in TN about packraft rental. The usual response is "A what?" or after describing one, "Someone should start making those." Most of the whitewater trips are out west, but there are plenty of photogenic trips elsewhere, and many with good fishing/hunting.
Most of all, I'd like to find a packraft rental outfit that is willing to ship through the mail. I'd even be ok with just taking one out on the lake for a day. It seems that short of buying one, taking one for a test drive will require a trip to the left coast. Reading all these stories about hiking with a boat in my pack has me eager to buy one, but a home purchase is slated for later in the year, so a packraft in my outings will have to wait until next spring/summer. Until then, I'll have to live vicariously through the text and photos of others.
