Summer Rafting Necessities!Posted July 22, 2010 by Malina
you might need a reminder of what to wear for your rafting adventure. So
here are the hot weather basics…
Sun Hat: big brimmed, little brimmed, visor or bucket hat (for the cool
kids.) Just make sure your moneymaker is covered for the serious rays we
have here in the foothills.
Sunglasses WITH Retainers: It’s hard to see the spectacular scenery through
squinty eyes. Make sure you bring retainers (chums, crockies, etc.) to make
sure you don’t loose those glasses when you join the AO swim team. If you
forget, you can buy them from All-Outdoors at check-in.
Sunscreen: again… Because tans are sooooo yesterday!
Quick-dry shorts: much nicer than jeans or a Speedo.
Long sleeve Shirt: A long sleeve shirt can save you from a burn (the rafting
gift that keeps on giving) and from explaining your farmer’s tan on Monday.
Didn’t I say tan’s are so yesterday! Cotton is also a good top option in
summer to keep you cool.
Shoes: No flip-flops. Other than that, anything goes. Well… almost anything
(I would say no Uggs, after ski boots, s***kickers or high heels.)
Undergarments of your Choice: I’ll leave it at that!
