Also, we have some interesting divesifications languagewise, as typical for a place like Europe, check this:
Pekka makes a version in Finnish - and developseda real packrafting tour organiser (next trip in June)
Edu writes every day in Spanisch - contribute to the story contest till Dec. 31!
Chris continues on British English - and traditionally diversifies with IK. Check the Supai review.
And this Blog shall serve in German - although ocassionally sharing some content in English
But where is the Packrafting blog in French - and Eastern European languages?
Looking forward to next summer, like Fred is doing in reflection of the Bavarian Isar.

I like Pekka's proposal, embracing newcomes:
"I've started to prepare a group expedition into Lapland - again. The destination is going be Pöyrisjärvi wilderness area in northern Finnish Lapland.
I'm especially trying to avoid difficult rapids as there are several newcomers coming. The plan is also to go early in June to make sure there's enough water and preferably no insects. I also find flat narrow rivers somewhat nice (have you ever paddled Haukkajoki at Helvetinjärvi national park?) as constant adrenaline rush is not always what people seek. Higher water level may also make Käkkälöjoki a bit swifter" See itinary and event organisation.
Dave, aka selfpowered, took the full cycle from joy to exuberance in due time and shared his reflection on risk.
Thomas, better knows as Mr. Kwanon, started to challenge us with glowing content in German
Georg and friends are in the final preparation for a "first" expedition, Transpatagonia 2014
Richard, the Lonely Traveller, is not alone anymore.
Rumors of Hendrik coming back next year, I expect him to take over the Scene series as a TWIR branch ;)
