Each morning, I have the bits of my life scattered about me. First, I put them in their respective small sacks, then I carry them to my kayak where there's a definite process to get everything packed just so. Sometimes I have it relatively easy (i.e. at a landing) and sometimes, it's a major chore (mosquitos and flies biting me while I stomp around in the muck). It's the time of day that I put off in the comparable safety and comfort of my tent. However, I always enjoy being on the water so much, that it's just an obstacle to conquer on my way to paddling.
