Description:
We are planning a packrafting trip this Sunday down the Colo River from Bob Turner's Track to Upper Colo Bridge. The trip involves a car shuffle, an hour walk in and a 23km paddle which will involve a few rapids.

It will ultimately depend on the river level which probably needs to be at least ~1.5m. Hopefully it will get there with the rain forecast over the next couple of days.

Given there is quite a bit of distance to cover on the river an early-ish start would be good (thinking of meeting at Windsor ~7.30)

Outside of the ordinary day tripping needs, the specific packrafting equipment you will need include: packraft, wetsuit, paddle, life jacket, safety, helmet and straps to tie down packs.

We will probably limit the group size to around 8 and we will need up to 3-4 cars to do the car shuffle depending on the group size.

It will be a relatively long day, and is probably not a beginners trip. You will of course need to know how to swim.
