I put for the grand canyon on march 2nd and I'm starting to get real stoked. Anyone else row the big ditch before?? Looking forward to 3 weeks of complete disconnection from the outside world and full immersion in the desert. Done a few Cataract canyon and San Juan trips but this will be my first time through the grand. I signed up to be on the oars which is a little terrifying but super exciting.
Taking advice on what to bring, what to do and see, etc. Or just interested in hearing how other people's trips went. Obviously I've done a lot of research already but I'm curious to hear personal anecdotes.
