I am posting this in parallel to a post at packrafting.org, as I have been told it might be of interest here. I do realise there is a 'packraft' section on this forum, but I feel this is not entirely about packrafting per se. Moderators: feel free to move if wrong choice.
For a while I have been pondering how one might live a self-powered, mobile, healthy and acceptably comfortable life; and how this might work on a societal scale.
After acquiring a packraft this has gone from speculation to a little experimentation. This is my particular take at 'lightweight travel with packraft', featuring a big duffel bag on the bow to keep all your stuff, and simple tricks to make the packraft into a mini-tent with minimal extra gear (the whole thing floats, but can equally be used on land too).
Don't expect an account of 5 years on the (watery) road. These are just first attempts.

The weights involved here (20kg and up a bit) may seem out of place on a '...light' forum, but we are talking 'home' rather than 'pared-down gear set for a specific trip'.
I hope this is useful. Comments welcome. Keep the groove,
Edit: let me add a picture:
