Canoe cushion like Crazy Creek. Works in the canoe, by the fire, or down by the lake.

I bring a wool blanket. Usually just use the sleeping bag as extra padding.

And just to add to the nostalgia, the specific wool blanket I bring was a gift from my dad when I was a kid that he got with Marlboro points!

I never used to do bring booze but on the last few trips I bring just a couple of singles. One for the halfway point and one for the last night. Great medicine.

Definitely duct tape. That magical stuff has gotten me out of many jams. I actually started bringing Gorilla tape a few years ago, works even a little better when it comes to adhesion to canoes, paddles, packs, etc.

As noted, map and compass. Ain't nobody no how finding their way from Sag to Kawnipi without these.

So sayeth the voice of experience (despite holding them in my hands at the time):

"If this isn't the &*^% portage, I'm going to forego dinner tonght!"

"Uh oh ..."

I think this is an interesting idea for an important item, my wife disagrees she said a shovel, so we'll leave it at that.......

Maybe so. I might be showing my age. They were glass at one time. They probably don't have cork stoppers anyore as well, right?

Partners. Not a fan of solo trips. I mean, what’s the point of making memories to yourself. Definitely enjoy going with other people so much more.

Good, fun, canoe tripping partners. Number one. The rest is just checking something off a list.

cheers, scat
