What do you pack in your canoe?

Let’s face it: Packing for a canoe trip can be daunting. You try to keep it simple, but you have to plan for variable weather, variable terrain, variable people, variable life. We went to some of the wilderness experts at Stone Harbor to find out what they make sure to bring along on their canoe trips.

Nickie: Camelbak and bug spray with DEET.

Annette: Water filtration system and a headlamp.

Scott: Fishing rod and a hammock.

OK, some of our wilderness experts couldn’t decide on just one.

Jan: Marmot driclime windshirt.

Beth: Emergency fire starter.

Ann: Duct tape. I wrap it around half of a pencil to keep it small and lightweight.

Jack: Swimming goggles.

Chris: Food.

Phil: Map

Megan: My buff.

Jay: A good multi-tool.

What do you make sure to include on your canoe packing list? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
