My second task this week is assembling maps, books, and music/entertainment to bring along on the trip. The great thing about carrying an iPad is that it has lots of storage room to include reference books and items to read for pleasure. I hope to do a little wandering while around camp and on shore encountering plants, insects, and other wild creatures. I’ve also been warned that the winds on the big lakes can be overwhelming and to expect to be windbound on shore for several days. Having some good reading material will make the hours pass by a little quicker while waiting for conditions to improve.
Two weeks from tomorrow I’ll be departing Lincoln. I’m trying to wrap up my to do list which mostly includes loose ends around the house. The canoe, food, and equipment are all ready to go. I know I’m forgetting something important, I just can’t remember what it is!
