Good question. Agree with most others. Dress for immersion, bring lots of hearty food, be less ambitious in choosing rapids, and pay more attention to a cozy camp. I like a fire in front of a lean-to like the traditional old-style canoeists. It is cheery compared to 14 hours inside a nylon tent.
I love the lack of crowds. We are headed to the desert in Feb.
