    Kayak Bill - Foraging

    Another great read thanks. I have eaten seal stew a number of time over the year and the flavor was much like beef. I have never tried the fat though but I have heard it's an acquired taste, my wife's grandfather (who was Kwagiuith) used to jar it in chunks the old people really liked it but not...

    A few years ago I would have found it very helpful to see what other kayakers where packing for 2 week solo trips. I hope this is helpful to some even if it’s just to use one or two recipes. All of my food is packed into 2 large dry bags, one bag has all my non nonperishables meals packed...

    I carry a water proof Nikon coolpix point and shoot in my life jacket pocket and I have ruined literally hundreds of pictures over the last couple of years with water drops and/or fog, I was just wondering what others do to prevent this from happening.

    Thank for the report Stagger I did almost the exact same trip a week ahead of you.
