  5. Tent + ground cloth (we suggest sharing a tent if possible to minimize gear).
  6. On multi-day trips with on river camping you will need a large river bag for personal gear (can be rented from REI?? - camping gear needs to go in this bag, so make sure you get one big enough).
  7. Small river bag for day use on the river, with carabiner to clip it on.
