What are you packing for your Texas float trip? Are you bringing a towel, sunscreen, or bathing suit? What about snacks and drinks to make the day more enjoyable? It's always good to have these things on hand when floating down the river. But what should you pack that isn't as obvious- like toilet paper or wet wipes? Check out this blog post for some ideas!

When planning your float trip, you should keep in mind that dealers and rentals are common. You might be able to find a raft or inflatable for rent on the river near well-known floats spots.

To have a good time on the river, you should clear your litter after yourself and clean up when others forget. Alwaiys apply plenty of sunscreen, drink responsibly, and keep it light while still having fun!

I suggest doing two trips, one with the family and one with adults. Both experiences are fun, but completely different from each other.
