EASY! Your local sporting goods store is a great place to purchase gear for a whitewater river rafting trip. In Northern Arizona, we like Big 5 and Sport’s Authority. In other states, maybe Dick’s Sporting Goods, Modell’s, or REI. You don’t have to break the bank for river gear you may never use again.
In Flagstaff, AZ we have a Big 5 within walking distance from our partner hotel (Courtyard by Marriott). Super convenient. I was over there the other day and thought I would show you my finds for cheap!
I found waterproof rain gear – top AND bottom – for just $14.99. A suit like this would work perfectly on all of our white water rafting trips.
I also found head lamps for just $9.99… again, a perfect buy. Head lamps make camping much easier – you’ll have both hands free to fumble around at night!
And a “wall-o-water” bottles, as one of Grand Canyon Whitewater’s guides deemed the following image.
