    Lost (misplaced) a tool

    I lose knives all the time. I have four Mora knives and know where only one is. I just keep buying them. I do not buy expensive knives, even though I love them. I don't have a shop with tools, but I recently lost 15 pounds of brown rice. Brad finally found it in an almost empty rubbermain...

    Recommended Fishing gear for Marshall-Kap

    For those of you who have been there, what kind of fish did you catch and what kind of lures were you using? I plan to be there late July and into August.

    That sounds just about doable for me. I am not good in crowds.

    Do you see a lot of wildlife on canoe?

    In south Florida, you can see all manner of water birds, gators, manatees and dolphins. Paddling in the 10,000 Islands, I’ve had dolphins come right up to the canoe to look at me. Also otter. Frigate birds if I’m lucky.

    In Canoe Storage

    The poly-pack liners Glenn just posted are 6 mils - I just checked. I have purchased 6 mil industrial garbage bags. Pretty cheap per unit, but I've only found them packaged for industry. Still worth it, I think. I use the 6 mil garbage bags and put it all into roll top dry bags. I keep it...

    Modifications to a Solo Yoke?

    I am going to be paddling a Colden Dragonfly this summer and it does not have a portage yoke to go with it. I have purchased this: Universal Portage Yoke Using it as is, the canoe is so far above my head that I can't balance the canoe at all. So, we removed the center block which brought...

    ​Patching (and inspecting) dry bags

    Thank you, Glenn. I have emailed the company and got a reply. I am supposed to send and then my internet went down for 12 days and I am so far behind on everything. Meanwhile, I have a NRS Bill's Dry Bag. Actually, I have two, but am only planning to take one this trip...

    ​Patching (and inspecting) dry bags

    When winter backpacking, we would strap snowshoes or XC skis to the side of the pack. I don't remember any particular problems. Obviously on an overgrown portage trail that could be a problem. I'm not worried about the paddles. For a fishing rod, I'd have to have some sort of protection, which...
