We want to make your preparations as easy as possible. Here are some of the things we do to make that possible.
Pre-Trip Information: We provide each guest with the most thorough trip handbook in the adventure travel business. It covers every part of your preparation: what to bring, a reading list, your travel and hotel plans and every other question you might have. We also provide an extensive field guide to the area you will be traveling through. Our field guides cover the natural and cultural history of the areas, descriptions of plants and animals you may encounter, and much more.
Packing: Packing is Easy. We provide you with all the waterproof dry bags you need, and premium quality rain gear, too. These are all provided so there is no need to spend time and money shopping for these expensive items.
What You Bring: Your own clothes and, on our camping/kayaking trips, a sleeping bag.Clothing should be suitable for the time of year bearing in mind that it could become cold and wet at any time of year. Layering is the best way to regulate body temperature and maintain warmth. We suggest avoiding cotton (except for those hot days), because it has no insulation when wet. An inner material that wicks moisture from the body and gives a comfortable dry feeling even while wet is the best first layer (Polypropylene, Lycra, Nylon, Polyester). A synthetic material such as fleece, wool or pile makes the best second layer to provide warmth. Our handbook includes a detailed checklist; here is a brief overview:
