Our merchants wish you a great vacation. Be careful. Nos marchands vous souhaitent de bonnes vacances. Soyez prudents! 5 canoe-camping tips
3. EQUIP YOURSELF AS NEEDED In addition to your canoe and tent, you’ll need a fair amount of gear. Be sure to bring your personal flotation device, whistle, compass, dry bags, sleeping bag, waterproof matches, bug repellent and survival kit. 4. LEARN TO LOAD YOUR CANOE To make sure the boat is stable, you’ll need to evenly distribute your gear along the bottom of it. Also, you should secure the items in place. This way you won’t lose anything if the boat capsizes. 5. PACK THE APPROPRIATE CLOTHING Stay away from natural fibres like cotton and wool. Instead, opt for synthetic materials that dry quickly. You should also pack a wetsuit, a hat to protect yourself from the sun and warm clothes for cooler evenings. Finally, remember to pack your favourite camp food and a comfortable chair. After a long day of paddling, a well- deserved meal around the campfire is a must.
Canoe-camping requires a lot of planning, especially if you intend to venture into the wilderness without a guide. Here are five ways to ensure your adventure is a success. 1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT ROUTE There are a number of factors to take into account when choosing a route for your canoe-camping trip. Some things to consider are:
• The experience and fitness level of each group member • The expected weather conditions • The degree of difficulty and turbulence along the waterway • The number of portages • The distance
2. FIND OUT IF YOU NEED PERMITS Familiarize yourself with the regulations in the area you’re visiting. You may need to obtain access and fishing permits.
How to pack for the airport like a pro
If you’re planning to fly this summer and want to make sure everything goes smoothly at the airport, you’ll need to be careful about how and what you pack. Here are a few guidelines. CARRY-ON BAGGAGE Most airlines allow you to board the airplane with one carry-on bag, such as a small suitcase or travel bag, and one personal item, like a briefcase or laptop bag. You may also be able to bring items that aren’t considered baggage like a small purse, stroller or coat. Make sure you’re able to lift your carry-on over your head so that you can slide it into the overhead compartment. You should also board the airplane with your medications and anything else you may need if your checked baggage
is delayed upon arrival. If you wish to carry any liquids, they must be in travel-sized containers no bigger than 100 millilitres. All the containers must fit in a one-litre bag, which should be kept nearby since you’ll need to show it at the security checkpoint. CHECKED BAGGAGE Liquids in containers larger than 100 millilitres and sharp objects must be stowed in your checked baggage. Many airlines charge a fee for checking suitcases, so find out what you need to pay before you leave. Also, make sure to weigh and measure your bag to determine if it’s within the allowed limits. This way you’ll avoid incurring extra charges.
