What to Bring
There is no storage on the houseboat, and space is limited. Please bring only essentials. Also, there is limited privacy in the sleeping quarters.
Food and beverages
Sleeping bag, sleeping pad and pillow
Tennis shoes, lightweight hiking shoes or water shoes to protect your feet from thistle. Teva-like shoes are great for wet areas- you will be hiking through pools of water. So bring both kinds of shoe.
Towel and wash cloth
Personal toilet articles
Comfortable work clothes (remember you will be performing intensive manual labor, picking up wet and dry trash, bring clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty). Bring enough clothes for layering to insure comfort.
Day pack to carry water, snacks, etc on hikes
Thermal underwear/sweatsuit (during early spring/late fall months)
