Rafting Trip:
  • Bring warm cloths/jacket as it will get cold at night. It was 42 here this morning
  • Bring money to rent a wet suit and booties (highly recommended). I called Whitewater Challengers, its $20 for the full suite. (I’ve rafted many times, you want a suite). Also for meal stops, it’s a long drive.
  • Do not wear crocks or sandals. Bring an extra pair as you will get wet.
