    Heavy downpours happen and canoes sometimes tip over. You can’t warm up properly with cold wet feet. Always carry a pair of clean dry socks in an airtight plastic bag.
    Pack a few clean, folded lawn & leaf size garbage bags. They’re invaluable for keeping sleeping bags dry if the ground is wet or the tent leaks. With a facehole, one can even be used as a rain poncho or windbreaker in a pinch.
