Next week we will pull our sailboat Yemaya out of the water for the season in Georgian Bay after traveling about 800 miles. From Georgian Bay we will travel up the French River and down the Mattawa and Ottawa Rivers to Ottawa, which is the Capital of Canada. The last 1,200 miles of our journey to Washington D.C. will be in our 20 ft Wenonah Canoe named Sig.
On our sailboat we have the luxury of carrying some creature comforts that we can not bring with us in our canoe. Over the next week we will have to decide what we bring with us and what we leave behind. It is getting colder almost every day and we know that we will need plenty of warm clothes, but what else should we bring with us?
Let us know what you think we should carry with us in our canoe. Remember if we bring too many things, or things we don’t really need it will slow us down and make it harder for us to get to Washington D.C. However, if we leave important things behind we could also run into trouble along the way.
Send us your suggestions and let us know what you think we should bring.
