Pack List

A few travel tips Each and every individual has his or her own way of traveling, some travel light and some travel heavy. We encourage you to pack wisely on one hand bringing too much gear and equipment will hamper you and on the other too little gear will leave you cold and lacking. It is our desire for this web page to assist you as a reference guide in making decisions that only you can make.

Some of our trips have certain weight and size restrictions and a large suitcase may end up lagging behind on a trip in a jet plane and especially, in a small Bush plane. These restrictions are in place for your safety and your convenience. Cavner and Julian Inc. will not be held responsible for overweight or oversized baggage denied transportation, and hopefully such gear will follow us as soon as possible, but will certainly be a major downside to the trip. With care this, of course, can be avoided. It is recommended to use soft-sided luggage and bag sizes that are conducive to fit in airplane compartments.

It is advised to pack the minimum amount of equipment necessary for the type of trip you have booked. Use hard cases such as Pelican cases for fragile equipment on the main airlines or carry them on with your carry on items. Remember, whatever gear you bring you should be able to comfortably carry it, especially out on a hike. You will be far more comfortable packing around less than more.

We also encourage you to mentally prepare for the area you are traveling to by reading up on the area and visiting other helpful links in this site. Your preparation will enhance your knowledge and enjoyment of the area, the mountains, rivers, and animals.
