Rotary Adventure Packing Guide

 

 

A suggested packing list for you.  Put your name on EVERYTHING you bring since the group is so large. 

If possible, try to bring enough clothes so you won't have to stop and do laundry; light t-shirts, socks, etc. can be hand-washed in your hotel sink.    The weather may vary, expect snow, it also could be warm. . You can dress in layers. T-shirts, sweatshirts, windbreakers and sweaters are great for this. You can peel things off or add things as you need.

Bring your passport If you want to sleep and rest on the bus, bring your own small pillow WE WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY STEALING OF PILLOWS OR TOWELS FROM THE HOTELS! 

Bring prescription medicines in their original containers with the label showing the name of the drug.   Be sure to bring enough aspirin/pain reliever/Ben Gay for two weeks.   Day Pack:  To keep all your belongings together on the trip, we suggest a small backpack (often called a day pack); You can keep your phone,  water bottle, sunscreen, camera, film, etc. inside, and easily carry it on the hikes. 

 

Drinking water is very important on the western  trip.  Be sure to bring a refillable 2-liter water canteen/sports bottle with you.  Fill it while traveling, and in the hotel room each morning before we leave for each day's adventures! You can buy one at an Army Surplus or Dollar Store for under $5.  On Western Trip - YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE HIKES WITHOUT A 2-liter WATER BOTTLE.

 

There are baggage weight limitations of a maximum of 50 pounds (23 kilograms).  Also bags can't be bigger than 62 linear inches (Length + Width + Thickness). 

 

ON FLORIDA TRIP: Duffle or other squish-able suitcase because of limited space.

Put $50 in a place to pay this.  Or you will have to leave your bag behind.
