That time of year I would take a dry suit, especially if you are a passenger. A book that you can read to the group can be fun entertainment...short stories or funny poems work well.

Tolio meds

I would encourage you to get a prescription from your doctor for Fluconazole to take in your medical kit. Last year on a Grand Canyon trip seven out of sixteen of us got Tolio and mine was by far the worst case. Tolio is a trench foot-like foot fungus. It started on day 6 and I could barely walk for the remainder of the trip. This year I took a prescription of Fluconazole with me on my Grand Canyon trip and on day 12 when the symptoms started, I took a 150 mg tablet and it started improving the next day and cleared up. As a side note, I put on anti-fungal cream every night on both trips beginning on day one.

Download some good, noisy porn videos, bring some good Bluetooth speakers and play them for morning reveille.

I took a tin foil hat Utah ghosts and ufo's book on a Deso trip this summer thinking it would be for the kids, but it was the adults who were asking for another chapter every night

Tobacco and rolling papers - lower on the canyon this will be the only currency of value in bartering with some other trips.

Don't forget that "...the principal business of life is to enjoy it." (Samuel Butler)
and (when you don't get the camp you're pushing for):
"You don't always get what you want...but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need."
(Mick Jagger/Keith Richards)
