Not much stuff in the boat you seem to pack tighter than me. I have to work on that maybe :) Nice to see warm weather tripping shots in the winter.

Those are some great canoe country pictures. Taking part in that is why we go. A self-test is if you are taken back to the moment when you view the scene. If you can't I would slow the pace a little. Lingering in the pieces of paradise are never wasted time.

Thanks! 2 large-ish dry bags (one for clothes and personal gear; one for tent/food/other gear), and an ammo can for phone/camera/survival/emergency/little things I want handy while on the water -- this works well for me. Loop a strap of each bag over a thwart, and one strap through the handle of the ammo can, and I'm tied in and ready to go.
