We’ve all got it: that one thing we just cannot live without on a river trip. It might not be on the packing list but, by golly, we’re bringing it. For me, it’s leave-in hair conditioner and a pair of nail clippers. For Evan, it’s a journal or a good book. I’ve never seen Lindsay on a trip without a sarong and some colorful zinc oxide. Some of our guides bring a very elaborate lotion/facial cream routine on the river with them.
So let’s help out folks who have never rafted before — what’s the one (or two, or three) thing you absolutely must have on a Grand Canyon river trip? What’s your advice for someone who has never been down in the Grand Canyon? What are some of the little things that you think make all the difference in the world? List some of your personal favorites below, or on our Facebook page!
