dosxx Despite my detailed list complete with check marks next to “underwear” I arrived at our island outpost this past week with only the pair I had on. Luckily I was loaned (OK, given) a pair and I washed a pair once a day and wore the other and repeated the process all week. In our group’s defense I was offered a total of three but I made due with one plus mine.
That was a first for me with 25 plus years of Canadian adventures.

Bring Benadryl. I don't know if its my imune system or some new kind of horse fly up there, but the last 3 yrs solid, if I get bit........I turn into elephant man where the bite occurs.

I Did Forget Something

I forgot three things. First, my fishing skills have deteriorated after 8 1/2 months away from fishing northern waters so I didn’t bring my A game.
Secondly, I brought my “Michigan” tackle box instead of my “Canada” tackle box. That actually proved not to be a problem.
And last but not least, I forgot what a jerk a Canadian Customs Agent can be. I didn’t let him ruin my trip though!!!

Can’t wait until next year to do it all again........

Thanks to The Lord for the opportunity to enjoy a week in a special place with special people.

Again.....diaper wipes, never leave home without them!

My list is exactly the same as yours. great minds think alike. As camp cook you get a great deal of satisfaction from knowing everyone is getting fed and fed well, my wife has no idea how well we eat on these trips, and I'm not telling!! I buy everything at home and pack it and freeze it, with the exceptions of the items I can't bring across. Those items are purchased at the grocery store in Fort Francis on the trip up. Those items being, bread, buns, potatoes, onions, milk, OJ, Chicken and anything else that looks yummy, they have/had a really good bakery.
besides if I left it up to some of these guys we would have cereal for breakfast, dry sandwiches for lunch, and fish for dinner everyday. We have our fish, but we also will have rib eyes, grilled chicken, I have done a whole Ham, Chicken Marinara, and much more.

What am I forgetting?

I have been using two lists: one for groceries / meals and the other for other items.
Have a clip board which I use when grocery shopping as well as packing the car.
Happy to say that I have not forgotten anything i many years.

One ride home, I go through the grocery list and make changes to reflect what food items were / were not popular. The clip board makes it easy to write on in the car.
That list gets printed off the computer when I start shopping a good month before we leave for Canada.
I know many guys buy their groceries on the ride up to Canada but I prefer to buy while at home. This allows me the opportunity to shop weekly sales and freeze certain items.
