The One Thing i Forgot To Bring To the River

So....i know many of us have been on numerous river trips ranging from over night to 3 week long ones. After getting on the river, playing having fun, you get an epiphany "ohhh SH!T, I SHOULD OF BROUGHT...(?)." So thats my question. Im hitting up the grand canyon in august and i want to know what 1 or 2 things should i bring that would make the trip even better.

Im also in charge of entertainment and games so any ideas there would be great. other than the obvious-fribee, bocci, horse shoes, cards, dominos, travel scrabble, ect..............
thanks and cheers

Washers and Wigs

Make some washer boards if you don't already have some. Wig nights are good...

Maybe you should bring your calendar so you don't forget to go on the trip... like how you forgot to come over Saturday.

brought more of??

err--- more beer, whiskey, safety supplies, etc.. They don't call it joneser hole on the green for nothin'.

Seriously, bring a book about powell's trip with journal entries. We have always been entertained on Lodore trips. Camera for everyone to turn in at the end, make something for everyone after the trip.

this will sound lame...but it was actually really fun. i asked a non river friend to think of some activities for a san jaun trip last year and he showed up with blank plastic masks for everyone, glue, thread, candle and paperclips to pierce holes through the masks. one afternoon everyone decorated their masks with anything that they could find along the river. some had the all natural look...some built them from micro trash. you get the picture. it was fun...but you probably need the right crew for it.

You should bring a bottle of Wild Turkey "American Honey." If you haven't had it yet, it's time to try. I know Takemetotheriver will chime in on this one!
