Essential Piece of River Gear: Wet Wipes

Don’t Leave Home Without Wet Wipes

Wet wipes are a must on your Salmon River rafting vacation pack list. This compact, low-cost item will get used several times per day and will not break the budget – a great addition to any personal bag.

If you are like me, you like to feel clean throughout your day. This is not to say that I do not get sweaty and dirty, I just like to clean up afterwards.

I usually pack two zip lock bags of wet wipes for every river trip. One goes in my day bag where I can get at it any time while moving from camp to camp; the other resides with my sleeping gear in my large waterproof bag that is not accessible when loaded on the boats during the day.

Having the wet wipes in two locations makes it really easy for me to freshen up throughout the day. Maybe I want to clean the sunscreen off my face when we arrive at camp – a wet wipe provides a quick and easy cleanup. Think of it as a wash cloth in a bag.

The zip lock full in my sleeping gear offers a quick cleanup before slipping into my sleeping bag for the night. This does not take the place of a river shower or sponge bath but can really make you feel good before nodding off to the sound of the river.

This small item will help keep you refreshed throughout your day. So, make sure you add wet wipes to your pack list when preparing for your Salmon River vacation.
