Thank you kindly. I have been told it will be about 120 degrees and we will be on the raft and average of 6 hours a day.

Do you think 2 30-packs of adult beverages will be enough?

Please take some other beverages, too. I went on a very mellow 1 day trip (no rapids) and the captain had iced-tea and lemonaide drinks for everyone and said your guts could dry out before you realize your in trouble, so you don't really want to make it worse.

Be careful but have fun!

LOVED Havasupai

Make sure, when you get to The Phantom Ranch, that you buy the t-shirt. You can't get it at the rim or anywhere else.

I took the mules down, stayed at the ranch three days and then mules back up.

Make sure you've got extra batteries for your camera. The prices at the ranch are HIGH.

Looks like Arizona raft adventures and Canyon Discovery. I have not done anything like this before.

I will find out about Havasupai though. I was told there would be a thousand foot water fall generating some rapids,...

Is that Havasupai area.
