Glad to here you got a trip down the Ditch Willie, I got to go this last summer and had a blast. Gloves, good footwear, and lotion, you got to take good care of your feet and hands or you can get uncomfotable fast. Whiskey and other party supplies applied liberally should equal a great time.

Freehling's galvanized buckets saved us when a crusty old boater flipped, and lost Ivan's firepan. Buy the good map, and hike the most. Bars of Dr. Bonner's are a nice for bathing. Good books for lay overs. Any vices you have Wildo will come out exponentially so bring enough booze, tobacco, or whatever you young kids with your big pants and your rap music are doing today. I should of paddled Tapeats creek. Have fun call, and me during Creek season.

Burt's Bees Hand Salve or Climb On lotion bars or both. Whenif that fails little tubes of super glue to put your hands back together.
