When you arrive at your wilderness destination you may be in for some surprises. The first realisation that you'll have is that if you didn't bring it with you, you're out of luck.
Pack carefully. There aren't any corner stores around to pick up what you forgot and left at home. Make sure you remember creature comforts like biodegradable soap and a toothbrush.
Be safe. Use conservation hooks so that you can unhook yourself easily, take frequent paddling breaks if you're not used to canoing and keep an eye on your campfire. Doctors may be a long ways off.
Remember your camera. Sounds silly, but this is a trip you won't want to forget.
