Luc, you are a bit of a legend in the packrafting community! Can you tell us what motivated you to write your book? The Packraft Handbook started as a short safety manual. I had been teaching swiftwater safety courses for the Swiftwater Safety Institute for a few years and wanted to figure out how to get safety techniques out to more people. I was only reaching 30-40 people a summer with the in-person courses. But after writing the safety and rescue content, I realized that it would be even more valuable to write about how not to need rescue! (Duh!) So,...

I had spent hundreds of hours guiding waterfalls and canyoning on the Nam Yao River in a back corner of Shan State, Myanmar (Burma) with my company, Myanmar Adventure Outfitters. Myanmar is remote as it is, and now after a military coup on February 1, 2021, it's plunged this nation that had so much promise back a decade or more and imposed isolation.

Today we are excited to interview Karen Jettmar - packrafting enthusiast with over thirty years experience! How did you get into packrafting? I've been paddling one kind of boat or another since I was a child. I learned to paddle on paddleboards made by my father. These were constructed using airplane wing technology. He used thin plywood stretched over a wood framework and were up to 15-feet long. He also made feathered paddles to use with the paddleboards. It took two of us to carry one down to the beach, and then we'd just hop on and paddle to our...

Very quickly, we fell in love with both paddling and with the ability to take them along anywhere and turn a hiking or mountain biking trip into a paddling trip as well.  We discovered packrafting for developing our company routes, but now I’m addicted and am out all the time paddling rivers that no one has ever paddled before, and it's so incredible to be able to get a boat into these remote areas and paddle in frontiers.
