Grand Canyon bartering

We put on in a week ( 3/28 ), and with the season changing right after, that means there will be at least a few trips launching after us that will pass us (particularly motor rigs). Sounds like a good opportunity to barter or beg for cocktail ice. Anyone have any good strategies for success?

All our bartering revolved around alcohol, tobacco, and toilet paper. Think any of vices are good starting points. We were a fall trip so no motors but bet the guides are willing to bargain. Having an extra guide book or two worked out well for private parties.

2nd (dry) tobacco and (dry) rolling papers. $10 on the rim is worth many times that in the ditch.

A colorado flag helps but letting the drivers of the motor boats know you have weed will help. Of course they won't run right up too you with tourists but one point person usually works well.
