Paddle & Portage – Packing

We go over the packing list of what I’m bringing for the two day paddle & portage trip.





We’ll be spending an overnight in a Yurt, so that means even less stuff to bring. My paddle partner Todd (dragonflyhiker) is joining me, so we decided to split the load. Make sure you watch his video also.

Comment what you think I’m missing.
