Packing tips:

    1. Need gear? Contact Wayne at number below for recommendations.
    2. Always be prepared for sudden weather changes.
    3. Pack layering systems for maximum versatility with minimal clothing.
    4. Line dry bag with garbage bag. Our dry bags are 16” diameter x 33” tall or 3.8 cubic ft. when sealed and lined with plastic.
    5. Bring extra zip-locs or plastic bags to keep wet clothing separated from dry

Leave No Trace things to remember

      1. Remove all packaging prior to arrival at the put-in from newly purchased items to reduce garbage on the river.
      2. No soap is allowed in the river, wash in the sand or rocks. Wet wipes are a good alternative to freshen up.
      3. All micro-trash is packed out.

Cold Water &  Weather considerations Multiple layers of  light-wt to mid-wt or heavy-wt capilene/under armor or other synthetic fiber and fleece.

Always keeping your wet river clothing separate from dry camp clothing.
