A gear list to use for an overnight canoe float
Greg West found this list on Outdoorzy.com http://www.outdoorzy....
1. Canoe Paddle
2. Cooler (don’t forget ice)
3. Dry Bag – to keep cell phones, extra clothes, TP, etc. (can buy them at Wal Mart, or any Outdoors Store) they are made of a rubber-type material and seal shut and buckle…
4. Food – 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner, 1 Breakfast
5. Snack Foods
7. Sleeping Bag
8. Sleeping Pad or Air Mattress
9. Bug Spray
10. Sun Block
11. Toilet Paper
13. Hygiene Stuff (toothbrush, contact solution, woman stuff, deodorant, etc)
14. Paper Towels or Napkins
17. Water (a gallon jug or two is good, or the type with a spicket on it)
18. Beer – Cans are best. You can crush them down to a smaller size, and they don’t break and create a hazard on the islands
19. Trash Bags – Leave no trace, we pack out what we pack in…except for poop
21. Citronella Candle, if we can have about one of these per boat, we should have plenty when we get to camp
22. Folding Chair – the kind in a bag are usually great
24. Zip Locks
25. Duct Tape – to repair shoes, canoe, gaping wounds, etc.
26. Utensils to eat with
27. Life Jacket/PFD– we have some of these, but may not have enough to go around, if you have one, or have access to one bring it please!
1. Canoe Paddles – we are pretty sure we have enough paddles, but if you have extra, or access to some, bring them just in case.
2. Rubbermaid container – these are good for carrying food in and other things you want to keep dry. Just a box-like container is what we usually take. One per canoe can usually fit the food and clothes items you don’t want to get splashed.
3. Sandals – Tennis Shoes are fine, but sandals are great (Chacos, Keens, Tevas, Crocs, etc. are a good way to get a weird suntan on your feet that will be like a battle scar).
4. Fun Items – Water Guns, Frisbees, Fun Noodles, Tubes, Volleyballs, Music Instruments, etc. (BE Creative)
5. Camera – make sure this is in the dry bag, maybe even double-bagged in a zip-lock
6. Poncho – you never know if a shower could come up
8. Can-opener, if you need that for your food
9. Small First Aid Kit
10. Fishing Gear

You mentioned a knife, but a camp axe or folding saw would be helpful also.
Bowling Green, KY
Military grade folding shovel: acts a standard shovel, trenching shovel, light axe, short saw on one side of blade, and as a hammer.
Good list. But on the heavy side. cooler? ice? cans? I guess I have been backpacking too long to afford all that weight.
