Like check your camera batteries. Been camping and find out after one picture my battery is dead for the entire trip.

Sunscreen lotion on a summer trip.

What have you forgotten?

Forgot the bug spray three years ago. Didn't remember it until we were already about five miles in. Decision was made not to go back for it. Worst bug year I remember in the 40 I've been up there. Woke up at dawn one morning on Malberg to see a guy in an unloaded canoe, drifting around in the middle of the lake just beating himself with his hat to try to kill mosquitoes. We literally jogged the portages that year to try to get back onto the water and away from them. Forgotten bug spray or no, I don't know that anything short of setting ourselves on fire would have kept them away.

Haircut.
One hot and humid August trip in the mid-1990s was all I needed as a reminder. Now I always get one a day or two before heading out.

Been there done that,now also I take a head net or bug shirt also. Use to laugh at people who had head nets. Always thought there is a city slicker. Found out joke was on me.

On my last two week trip I put my extra camera battery in the charger at the last minute to top it off...making a mental note not to forget it. On day 2 of the trip I started looking for it and that mental note jumped to the front of my brain. I managed on one battery but took far less pics than I would have with the extra battery.

Keep a running checklist, write down every little thing/

On my last trip, I left my maps at home. That was an expensive mistake; needed to buy two new sets of 6 maps each (my daughter always likes to have a set), and that set me back over $100.

On the same trip I left our beef jerky and pepperoni in the fridge, and I left my toothbrush in the bathroom at the bunkhouse. I had to wipe my teeth for two weeks.

Forgot my portage yoke, luckily only cost me 45 minutes to go back for it.

I forgot a toothbrush one time. I had to use my finger all week. It doesn't work all that well.
I forgot our maple syrup twice. I will not forget it this time.
I'm usually pretty good about not forgetting stuff as I keep a great checklist. But sometimes $#!^ happens.

I have forgotten to put fresh line on before a trip, sunscreen and bug spray but others filled in for me. The biggest thing that I forgot was the ribeye steak, lunch meat, cheese and butter in the freezer at home. The boys were not amused.

I've always been a minimalist, I can't remember forgetting anything that I couldn't camp without, I'm sure there has been something.

I pack the nite before or day of and don't do a list. I did a three days 2 niter in AK recently and didn't bring bug dope. I thought how could I forget that? Then I got to thinking, I rarely bring bug dope, why would I have brought it now.
One year in AK so far and have only used it twice.

Not a canoe trip, but on an Isle Royale hiking trip I left cheese in my car for a week. I was eating summer sausage and some cheese for breakfast on the drive from Ryden's to the dock. I finished the summer sausage, but still have a fair amount of cheese left. I sat it on my console when I got out and my intention was to put it in my food pack for dinner later that evening. That night at camp, I realized what I'd done. Hot sun through a car window onto cheese for a week leads to the need to drive with you windows down until you hit Duluth.

Back in the late '70s I was packing to go on a nine day adventure. While running around I did notice a bubble in my right front tire on the inside. But you know, your busy and you'll take care of it later. Well it was on the way home from Crane Lake in Virginia at Hardee's getting that chocolate malt when I did remember. It was worse, but well, I did make it that far... haha. Finally when I hit Willow River I pulled off and changed it. While changing it this skinny ol' guy comes up and is all excited about canoeing. And before he left had me coming up with my camper to his campground to help run his canoe service on the Kettle River... the story don't end here, but we will end it hereb

The tooth brush. Did that one once. I flossed with pine needles boiled to kill germs. Chewing gum was the way to sorta clean teeth and help with bad breath. Chew a long time to get most of sugar out if not using sugarless gum. We were lucky to have gum on that trip.

I bought a new Olympus Tough TG-4 waterproof camera for this years 4th of July 10 day Quetico solo trip. I have always taken along those portable disposable cameras but quality of pic was poor at best.

Well I just finished taking my 16th pic on Sturgeon Lake when a message on my new camera said " memory full ". Yikes ... It turns out I should have bought a memory card before my trip and inserted in the camera. I couldn't believe this new camera never came with a memory card, The 16 pics were being stored in the internal memory of the camera.

I ended up taking and deleting pics until I had the top 16 for the trip. Me bad !

Here are a few pics taken that made my "Top 16" (LOL):









There were dozens of painted turtles laying their eggs all over my campsite every day usually at sundown.

Buy the biggest memory card you can. Then buy another one. And an extra battery. :)

Since I got my waterproof P & S, which I carry in my shirt pocket, I take a lot more pictures. :).

Boonie,

I bought a Transcend SDXC UHS-I 64 GB Memory Card on Amazon. Supposed to be good for HD video too.

I am not a camera aficionado so not even sure what size card to get. 64GB sounded like a lot of memory.

I will take your advice and get another memory card and battery as well. Good idea.
 
07/26/2016 06:00AM
Yeah, that's a lot of memory, but I'm not sure how much memory video takes, if you're going to do more of that. And of course, the more pictures/video you take, the more battery power used. On a 10-12 day trip, I take hundreds of pictures.

Bug Zappers were available at Harbor Freight for $3.99 in June. Were not on "sale". I bought 2 as the one I had shorted out during rain last year. Seems to not tolerate dampness well so invested one of my trash sacks to keeping it dry both while traveling and in tent when not in use. For me, a must take item.

Drove from central Michigan to Minnesota for a canoe trip. Getting ready to unload the car and I made the comment, "The paddles must have fit in the car easier this year."

My husband got this weird look on his face and said, "Paddles?"

Yup. We had no paddles. We had our packs all organized, our canoe on the top of the car, all of our food planned and all of our camping gear ready to go. But he left the paddles in the garage, 800 miles away.

Next stop: Canadian Waters in Ely, where we bought a couple of cheap paddles. We still have them. They stay at our lake cottage along with our aluminum canoe, which has also been "retired".

Every time we have had the canoe on top of the car since, one of us will say, "Yes, we have the paddles." :-)

A couple of years ago we entered at Stuart River, after shuttling a car to the moose river EP. My dad and uncle shuttled my uncle’s truck to Moose River and drove my truck back to the Stuart River EP while I headed down the trail with some gear. Needless to say, after we got everyone and all of our gear down the 480 rod portage to the river, I turned to my uncle and said, “got your truck keys?”, and he just gave me this blank stare. Then the light bulb went and he said, “oh, we probably need those, don’t we?” After a good chuckle, I ran back for the keys to his truck. A much shorter run then I would have had if I would have had to run from EP 16 to EP 19. We still laugh about that one every time we’re shuttling a vehicle.

Was insufficiently skeptical when my nephews showed me their very light 4-person tent. Given that it was a cheap one I should have asked them to set it up. Turned out the rainfly had been left at home. After a few days rain threatened and we made a fly out of a tyvex ground cloth I had brought along. So it turned into a fun project.

Not fun: should not have trusted their father to remember the bug repellent.

Forgot to screw antenna back on Jeep after taking canoe down on a 2018 trip. Entire roof liner inside, or whatever it's called, is stained from rain water. I have since installed stubby antenna that doesn't have to come off to transport canoe. I remember lying alone in tent during a storm and realizing what I had forgotten. The trip was worth the damage.

Pfds. Kind of a spur of the moment trip to wabakimi from Duluth. We had time for a ten day trip and just through our gear into the van. North of Armstrong, we had paddled most of it before. We knew there were many sets of whitewater on the ogoki and alabany, only brought one pfd. Made for some interesting decisions.

Just last year I drove north with Twins87 and partner for a trip.

I had my solo canoe and when we arrived and I was organizing my gear in the bunkhouse I realized I had forgotten my removable portage yoke.

Called Carl at Rockwood and Mike built a solo yoke so I could have one to use!!!

For this one, I try to blame the Great Reservation SNAFU of 2019:

I got my Lizz/Swamp permit (I thought) and put Rockwood down as the issuing station. Apparently, each cooperator gets a notice of permits reserved at their station because I got a call from Rockwood about the possibility that the permits would be cancelled, stay tuned, yada yada... I thanked him and talked about needing a bunkhouse. He said to give a call back when this whole thing gets straightened out and we have our date set (again). Well... I did wind up with the same date and EP and issuing station in March, so I was satisfied at finally being all set...

You know the end of the story: 2 days before departure, I remembered I hadn't made that call. No bunkhouses available. It involved a bit of scrambling, and quite a few calls, never having done an overnight at any of the Gunflint outfitters to that point. We did wind up getting one night at a nice, tiny lakeside cabin just down the road from Rockwood: the Birch View Cottage at Nor'Wester Lodge.

It worked out well enough that I am hoping that Nor'Wester is open to possibly accommodating us for just a one-nighter again some time in the future...

There are some doozies on this thread. Here's mine:

1.Forgot the leeches in the truck. Not a pretty sight when we returned. I also felt bad for what I did to the leeches even if they are leeches.

2. Did a big Quetico trip and needed 6 maps. Not sure how I did it but I forgot the last map that I needed to get out and didn't realize it until that part of the trip came up. It was scary and depressing. Ended up finding a group and traced their map on a ziplock bag.

3. Rented a four person tent when my brother, nephew and myself went on a trip. It was a nice tent since it packed so small. First night we put it up... and it was a two person tent. So three of us in a two person. Think about that for a while.

Upon reflection, I think I average something forgotten about 1 in 10 trips. Never the same thing and survivable one way or another.

Spoons and forks= eating with a spatula isn't really that bad.
Paddles= Outfitters are such accommodating folks
Rod & Reel=Bait shops open early
Sleeping pad=Ditto with Ben Franklin
Rope bag= had help with that one but had some bits and pieces in the group
Toilet paper=Short trip in the fall, Basswood and maple leaves handy

Our group enjoys morning coffee and everyone brings their own insulated cup with lid. Mine's an REI 12 oz cup that has a lot of miles on it. One cold May trip one of the four forgot his cup and had to make do with the measuring cup in the cook kit. Good news is that it was a handwarmer, bad news that it was cold in about a minute. At the last campsite though, he found an REI cup that had fallen behind a log. All's well that ends well and that cup has made 15+ trips with us since then.

I rarely ever forget anything because of my somewhat genius system. All my stuff that I take is on a shelf above my bags. When I am ready I just scoop it off the edge and in and I have everything. Groceries are the same every trip so that is easy as well. However one time I bought Decaf Coffee which was a nightmare. But had energy Mio as backup.

I keep all my trip gear together in totes so I normally don’t forget anything. Last year I did leave my waterproof phone case at home. I put it in the pocket of a pack and decided to use another pack last minute. I spent an hour at the outfitters looking for it knowing I had packed it! I also left a pound of sliced cheese in the fridge at VNO bunkhouse. Your welcome!

Forgot to pack any source of caffeine for a 5 day solo.

I was going into withdrawal by the time I found a campsite about 3 PM. At first I just thought I was tired from the trip in as I set up camp, but then recognized the distinctive headache I get when I go cold turkey like this. I completely emptied the food bag looking for anything with the missing substance, but found nothing. Kicked myself for being in a rush when I was packing food. It lasted for 2 days, with a severe headache and chills into the 2 day. Spent the whole time in camp, very glad I had brought some Ibuprofen.

I am living proof that caffeine is one of the most physically addictive substances on the planet!

LOL, fortunately he is back home in Costa Rica and our 12 rolls of toilet paper will last us a year.
