Packrafting - Linton Lock to York

I managed to get out in the Packraft again recently, a nice steady 17km float down the River Ouse from Linton Lock Marina back home to York.

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.
