Canoeing and Camping
Larry Whiteley
Some great tips on hitting the water and camping.
Larry Whiteley

Combining a camping trip with a canoe trip is a great way to enjoy nature, get some exercise and escape the hassles of today's hectic, fast-paced world. 

The very first thing on your list should be life jackets and they should be worn, not stored. Waterproof dry sacks for tents, sleeping bags, clothes and anything else you want to keep dry is probably next in importance. Other essential items for your check list are rain suits, insect repellent, sun screen, first aid kit, matches or lighter, flashlight and extra batteries, rope, duct tape, extra clothes, a cooler with plenty of food and drink, eating utensils, garbage bags and even a cell phone just in case of an emergency. 

Fun things to bring include fishing equipment, nature books, a tape recorder for recording the sounds of nature and a video camera or digital camera for capturing all the memories of your camping and canoeing adventure.
