Overview

Before you head out on an overnight canoe camping trip, or before you lead a day trip into the wilderness, be sure your skills go beyond the basics. Wilderness canoeing and camping require specialized techniques not ordinarily required in other outdoor recreation sports. Canoeing and Camping: Beyond the Basics shows you the all-important skills that will make your canoeing excursions safe and enjoyable, whether you paddle on millponds, lazy rivers, wilderness lakes, or the open ocean. Canoeing expert Cliff Jacobson reveals how you can: select the equipment that's right for you and customize your canoe and gear for better performance; master key canoeing skills, from paddling portaging, and transporting your canoe, to avoiding common hazards and rescuing and repairing your canoe; apply your canoeing skills when solo canoeing, leading day trips, canoeing with children and pets, or navigating through wilderness; polish your camping skills: learn to fix quick and tasty meals; weather storms; avoid bears, bugs, and other bothersome pests; and plan canoe expeditions.
