Suggestions for Trips In the Brooks Range Area? on 10/10/2010 13:47:14 MDT Print View

I'd like to do about a two week trip, probably out of Bettles, of backpacking and packrafting.

I'm a long ago kayaker (Grand, Salmon, Stanislaw, Arkansas, etc) and a current avid backpacker. The water skills are rusty, but pretty well burned in.

If a trip is doable with minimal packraft skills and rented gear I'd go that route. For instances, just flatwater drifts.

Otherwise I'll probably buy packrafting gear for local training , plus a couple of shakedown cruises.

Unless I can hook up with a private group, which I would prefer, I realize I'm constrained to "tours".

Suggestions on resources, books, routes, forums, experiences, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
