One tip BH... Don't wait until the bucket is in view. I think everyone will agree that the camping aspect of this trip can take its toll (especially when the weather is below perfect). But that is also what makes the trip special.

I agree with Crashpub about not waiting to do a trip like this. By day seven all of us were pretty tired. I was one of the newbies on the trip, and I have to thank Emerson for mentioning the giant ziplock bags. Trying to keep everything dry would have been extremely difficult without them.

Even with the weather, I had a great time, caught plenty of fish, and would like to do it again someday.
