    First Multi-Day Rafting Trip (Gear Recommendation Request)

    Heading out May 12th for a 4 day rafting trip. Never done this sort of thing before.

    What should I bring? Any gear suggestions and links to brands would be appreciated.

    I figure all of your spancers would be lining up to provide you with some free swag to review...

    A more humble attitude so the rest of your group doesn't think you're an asshole that they have to endure for the whole trip.

    Also, less spam and links. You'll be on permanent dish duty for that shit.

    Also, don't forget to take a photo of all your gear neatly laid out before you pack it up.

    Also, don't forget to take a photo of your feet and the view from the inside of your tent.

    What would you take on a four day camping trip? Put that stuff in a dry bag. What would you wear swimming? Wear that plus a PFD and any other clothes and shoes you need for the air and water temp where you're going. And booze.

    I'd like a comparison test of high-end flyfishing nippers. Abel vs. Orvis vs. Hatch vs. Simms.

    I think a comparison test of high end groovers is warranted
