Hi there, Do you not have access to your duffels and backpacks until the end of the trip or until you arrive at camp that night?

Also, I was going to try to bring a ukulele, do you think that is a good or bad idea?

I'm planning full canyon trip may 2016. Some friends of mine highly reccomended OARS, but their pricing is very high. Wanting to hear from others who have used Outdoors Unlimited to find out if they are reputable and offer the same high quality of standards that OARS offers. Wanting the great adventure on the river along with the great side hikes. Please let me know if Outdoors Unlimited is a top notch outfitter. Thanks
