Pack­ing Es­sen­tials

Vancouver Magazine - - Travel Summer Getaways -

Hy­drate Hard Fa­cil­i­ties on the is­land are lim­ited to out­houses, so be sure to pack enough drink­ing, bathing and cook­ing wa­ter. You won’t be car­ry­ing it (the wa­ter’s just go­ing in the boat, then sit­ting at your camp­site) so you can err on the side of ex­tra. For two days, two 20-litre wa­ter con­tain­ers from MEC ($ 10) will be more than enough. Get Cozy Don’t skimp on the sleep­ing cush­ions, wooden plat­form or no. Tuck­ing a foamy into a dou­ble ca­noe is im­pos­si­ble, but slim-pro­file MEC sleep­ing pads (from $ 65) are sur­pris­ingly eŒ ec­tive. Com­pact Cook­ing Tiny camp burn­ers are fab space-savers that get the job done. (And let’s face it, when is there ever not a fire ban?) Pick up a nine-inch sin­gle burner at your lo­cal hard­ware store (from $36) that fu­els with small propane cylin­ders.
