70 hrs and counting until we push off for our 10-day adventure. Gear is laid out and we're doing a last "do we really need this" checklist. I do find the food to be the hardest part of a trip with multiple people (my son and I). I was debating on taking the reflector stove since it's only going to be used once for Pizza. That was the one meal I didn't tell my son about and wanted to surprise him on the second night on Cherokee.

The other pain is fishing gear. Seeing we're going in 5 days before the opener, we gotta lug the rods and tackle box around. I'm going to take only what I feel necessary for the 4 days of fishing we'll do. I'll be on Makwa for the opener and then down the Lady Chain on our way out.

I'll put together a trip report once back and let everyone know what worked and what didn't for me.

thanks to everyone who's helped us with questions on planning. I'm not gonna know what to do once the trip is over :(

Mackwa is an incredible lake. You will like it there. It is a little ways in but worth it.

"What to do"? That is the easy part!! Start planning for your next trip.

Have a good trip, Dan. I'll look forward to the report. When I do food for other people, they get exactly what I get . . . :) Fishing gear weight can multiply rapidly as can food and "kitchen stuff".
