Packrafting - First Strokes

MRS Microraft

Over the last month or so I've been piecing together some new gear to allow me to take to the water when out backpacking. I've wanted a packraft for a number of years and with my birthday just around the corner I finally crumbled and raided my savings. After much deliberation I ordered an MRS Microraft which arrived last week, I was hoping to get out the day before this trip but the weather had other ideas. I'd checked the forecast and it looked a little better for the following day so I figured I could wait one more night.

SoloMid Door Mod

I really like the SoloMid, pitched nice and tight it's proved itself in a stiff breeze and I've found it large enough if I keep myself organised. One thing I've felt it's missing though is a tieback for the panel to the left of the door, so I decided to add my own...

Bowfell Climbers Traverse

Another rubbish forecast unfortunately meant no camping again this weekend, instead Peter, Lee, Alex and I decided on a day walk from Langdale taking in the Climbers Traverse and Bowfell.

Wet wet wet

A week or so ago I managed to nip to the Lakes for the first time this year, I'd hoped for a couple of camps but checking the forecast before leaving home suggested the weather was going to be pretty horrendous...
