I imagine that my trip will be feel like more packing and unpacking (as I set up camp and break camp every day) than paddling. It's not the funnest task in the world, and getting everything to fit in dry bags can be weary-making. I've decided to just make this my meditation of the day. Go slow and methodically, one thing at a time, so I don't do something stupid or end up hurting myself just because I'm impatient (yes, I've already scraped off a flap of skin on one of my fingers trying to stuff my sleeping bag too quickly). I can't afford cuts and scrapes, especially for avoidable dumb reasons on this trip. Major exercise in trying to improve grace and patience.
