    for summer adventure.


    Once Christmas is out of the way (as good as it was)
    it is time to start thinking SUMMER CAMP.

    I find planning fun AND when I plan well
    my personal experience bursts into joy and excitement.

    So, it you canoe trip like I do what is that you DON'T TAKE WITH YOU?

    Scented Deodorant:
    If you are going to use deodorant, make sure it is unscented. Unscented keeps the bears (and chipmunks and squirrels and ...) away, and still keeps you smelling fresh.

    Large Knives:
    What's the point of taking a large anything? There isn't anyone that you need to impress and you just might look silly.
    I don't bring jeans - they don't dry well when wet and don't keep you warm when they are.
    Anything that smells - other than human: :(
    I look for soaps, deodorants, tooth paste, wash suds and the like that don't have smells.

    Weapons: :sorry:
    I simply don't see them as part of any camping scene no matter what your argument is. If you live in an environment that you think they are required - move. YOU may be the real problem. If you have to bring a gun stay at home and have fun with your neighbours they will enjoy your Marshall Dillon act.
    Dark Cloths:
    Always bright and light. INCLUDING SUN GLASSES - bugs and mosquitoes are attracted to black. Did you notice?
    Noise Makers?
    Don't even think of it - leave the radio stuff behind.
    The Wrong People:
    I don't go with just anyone - I'm selective as they are too. Nothing like taking a trip with a drip.
    No Cans/No Glass:
    If I can't burn it or pack it out easily - it doesn't come in the first place.
    There are a lot of parks that have banned cans and glass in the interior.

    So..there we are.
    Strange list huh?

    This is what I use.
    Check out the natural soap displays in store or
    health stores - looks of good stuff.
