New gear for April canoe-camping trip. I resisted buying a portable zip-line kit — that would have been fun!

New Gear

It looks like the snow and ice might clear just in time for a canoe-camping trip at the end of April. Before each trip I make that dangerous visit to Mountain Equipment Coop and pick up a few more items for my ‘survival’ collection. This time: a small hatchet for better fire starting, a foraging book to supplement my otherwise well-prepared meals, and an inexpensive pair of binoculars for bird and stargazing. I resisted buying a portable zip-line kit — that  would have been fun! (I have a boring policy of not buying anything on the day that I think of it. It will go in the parking lot for next time.)
