Packrafting the Kettle River:
Launch for a multi-mile whitewater pack-raft on the Kettle River. Deathrider, Neil and I are the only players.
Seconds after the launch we group up so we can stay together and talk and enjoy the river together. Bridges are always a guaranteed launch site as well as take out. We know the take out is a canoe launch/landing many miles and many rapids downstream.
All the drifting is fine but a game of bumper boat is always fun.
Crash into anyone you can or team up and double team someone.
We find a section of river that is bigger than everything else so we eddy out and hike up the shore to run it a second time.
It doesn't look big from this side but if you see Deathrider (center) he is about to enter a 3 foot standing wave (water pouring around the corner created a huge hole) followed by a series of class 2.
So that puts us back where we started.
