As we cannot wait for our summer expeditions into the North to start we decided to take a short look back onto last year's trip into the Swedish wilderness. These are the last few kilometers of a long, exciting day of 24 km secluded Swedish river. Stones, rapids, beautiful landscapes and a very long stretch that we did not have to carry our luggage. At the end of that day we camped at a waterfall right before which we left the river. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nothing like the sleep you get next to the quiet "murmur" of falling water.

About to go East Coast for the 4th time in 8 months! This time to New York City. I'm excited but to be honest way nervous! Deserts and rivers and mountains are my habitat, not big cities. Luckily I'll only be there a few days, then it's on to the green hills of Vermont! Who's got tips on how to survive NYC??

I'm less than a month away from leaving Vancouver and city life behind. After 3 months of traveling I'll be settling down in Powell River approximately 50 kilometers north of where this picture was taken. Let's just say I'm pretty happy with the direction I'm taking my life in.

A magical moment on an incredible journey. It took a few years to come together and 3 attempts but I can now say I paddled 100 miles of the Fraser River in 21.5 hrs straight from Hope to the Pacific Ocean. It's nice to have this one in the bag. Regardless of how long you take to do this paddle I strongly urge every local paddler to do it. At least from Hope to Mission. You'll see what I mean

We are back from the Packraft meet up Europe 2018 at the Soca in Slovenia. The meeting was an absolute success and laid an important foundation stone. Over 50 participants from over 10 different nations. It was an honor to be part of it. We are looking forward to a repeat 2019. Many thanks to all participants and the organizers. Take care of yourself. See you on the river. More pictures follow.

Really starting to feel comfortable in this new boat. Being able to keep everything in the chambers has really been a game changer. It keeps the weight low and looks way better than the giant bag hanging of the back off old red.

"In January four friends and I set out on a weeklong, 83 mile journey by packraft down the Lower Canyons of the Rio Grande. Just downstream of Big Bend National Park, this section of Wild & Scenic river is one of the most remote waterways in the lower 48, running through deep canyons that form the Mexico - Texas border.โ €
โ €
One reasons our crew was drawn to the Rio Grande was because we could float it in the middle of winter. Another motivation was to better understand the threat posed by Trumpโ€™s border wall to our wild public lands.โ €
โ €
None of us had ever visited the Rio Grande before and we didnโ€™t know what to expect. The scenery blew us away from day one. This is deafeningly quiet country." -@colin_arismanโ €

What a spread

2018 has been a record dry winter/spring for the Verde River watershed.
_
I wanted to explore this topic through some non-traditional means. To get a sense for the abnormally low seasonal flows, we went bike-rafting on the Lower Verde: bike (or hike-a-bike, as often was the case), then paddle.

Nature provides so many different things to different people
-
"The grouse trumpet from the woods, an avalanche crashes down, waterfalls pound away in the distance. Somehow this all registers as stillness in my mind. The natural movements and sounds of the wild just donโ€™t bring about the same feeling of anxiety as city sounds for me.
After a long day of toils and turbulence I am free from the hustle and bustle that society brings. Free from the anxiety of what I have to do next. Through slips, bushwacking, tides, wind, mudflats, and postholingโ€ฆ It is perhaps understandable why most people donโ€™t come here in the winter, but that is exactly what draws me here." - @ericoravsky -

"Getting permission to launch our own boats on the water [in Tam Coc, Vietnam] wasn't easy. When we asked our hotel receptionist back in Hanoi if our intended trip was even possible, the girl stared at us for a moment to see if we were serious, then laughed and said "I don't know. I think you would be the first people to try this." The response was similar with everyone we asked." - @minayounglee โ €

Bike-rafting on the Verde River.
๐ŸŒ
Weโ€™re going on the sixth week of minimal releases from the Verde River reservoirs into the Salt River system. When faced with relentless drought, itโ€™s worth considering all of the things we can do to conserve water. But letโ€™s not forget that the most effective conservation opportunities are found with our largest water uses: agriculture. Itโ€™s time to start thinking about how we can all contribute to making our life in the desert more sustainable.
