A group of friends and I are putting together a Dirty Devil River trip for late-March/early-April (flows willing). I’m in the process of pulling together all the gear I’ll need and have some questions, mainly regarding what to wear. I’m currently leaning towards wearing a 3mm NRS farmer john with some sort of Gore-tex (or other material) splash top. I figure I can add layers under the top and swap out the wetsuit for pants at night while camping. I’m also thinking of just wearing neoprene socks in Chacos with the idea being I can swap out wet the neoprene socks at night for something dry and warm (wool?) while camping. Sound reasonable? Anything you’d do differently? Any other tips for the trip? We only have about a week, so we might just run half (i.e. Hanksville to Poison Springs or Poison Springs to Hite) so that we have more time to explore side canyons, etc., and enjoy the trip.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
