it's the desert, dude, that's what we do down here. and bring extra, extra. there is none at either put-in. seriously, you'll probably appreciate the extra, low stable weight for the "big stuff"!
we are just jealous of you PNW boaters that have water that you can just drink!
there is a place in town, Gearheads, on the main street through town, right next to the gas station at the City Market, that has a free filtered water station set-up. nice folks and good gear, too. they have some boating related camp stuff.
canyon voyages is the place to hit up for strickly boating gear if you need any. great folks also.
enjoy your trip. it will be a blast.
