JUST TO HELP YOU PACK
Time to pack
We will provide large (3.8 cubic feet > see banner picture above) drybags for you to use for your gear. We recommend that you bring a waterproof daypack (see below) to keep often-needed items (like camera, notebook, water bottles and snacks) nearby.
Pack for summer and winter weather
Please note: you can leave your suitcases or dufflebags, or whatever luggage you have + belongings not needed for the triver trip, for safe storage with our shuttle, and we will return it to you when we make landfall in Clarksdale after 6 days on the river.
You will experience a mix of temperatures. Nightimes and mornings can be below 10 degrees C, daytimes above 30 degrees. Here is a suggested list of what to bring - prepare for all eventualities.
