I wish I'd had a hacksaw on this last trip to cut down the umbrella as it was too high. Also, not at all happy with the dre umbrella stand...at all. It is not adequate for an umbrella with the set screws. Total bs because of the sloppage between the umbrella plug in receiver -- not tight, and the set screws not able to handle the dynamics without slipping as well. My first umbrella sucked in class II waves.

Deso -Gray sucked too. Never again during a late June trip. Why? My 6th trip of the year was an ordeal. I would much rather raft the main with the yellow jackets.

Spoiled, I am. 1st world problems...

To ad to your now over full tool box if you run pins and clips, a ratchet with a socket, that fits the head of the bolt part your pin, plus a wrench or vice grips for the nut. Obviously a spare pin to.

Ok, a real answer. A fistful of paracord has saved me many times. Jack Daniel's goes in the first aid kit.

Calculator is a holdover from when that was my only device that could do calculations electronically. I've used it for making calculations for cuts on gear, extrapolating measurements for recipes and though I've never used it on the river, it also is handy when having to do dosage calculations based on converting lbs to kg for medications. Now - I either drag out my iPhone deep in one of my dryboxes or I just do the manual arithmetic with pen & paper.
