What does the packing for a 5 week canoe trip look like?

Well, my clothing and gear choices are outlined below (although I did trim this a bit more after taking these photos):

Amazingly it all packs down into these two bags (hoping Air Canada won’t charge me a full extra bag for a paddle…)

Multiple this by 6, add three PakBoats, three tents and a kitchen/bug shelter and six barrels of mostly dehydrated food and you’ve got yourself a canoe-based field expedition.

Departure for Yellowknife tonight and departure for the field on Monday morning. This might be our last post here until return in late-August. See you then to share all of our observations!
