1 The items in this section are optional, even unnecessary by many standards. But we say, why not? Sitting is too important a pastime to entrust to logs and rocks. And there are many other conveniences that we might as well take along if we're taking it in two loads.
2 It's rather heavy, but is nice to have when rain threatens
3 When you've chosen to stay in one place rather than trekking daily, this can be useful (remember, only with two canoe loads of gear can we afford this luxury). But as soon as the sun comes out the tent goes down.
4 We could just boil water in a pot, but we've always used a kettle. This new kettle replaces an old one that got corrupted by insect repellant. The removable lid is an improvement that makes cleaning easier and allows it to be packed full during transit (no insect repellant). It's also kind of cool to hear the whistle in the wild.
5 These are the same kind of Rubbermaid dishpans we use at home and for car camping. If they're packed full they don't take up that much space.
6 Reliance R975 - 20L. We've taken this along but also used it to keep a store of drinking water back at the car for refilling smaller jugs.
7 Coffee carafe (insulated), filter cone, filters, collapsable strainer, cutting board. No need to take any of this if you don't drink coffee and won't be chopping and straining for your supper.
8 32 year old tv tables (wedding gift) and dishpan setup on a leaf bag frame. We've used the tables for everything but tv. If you haven't got a picnic table and don't like squatting to work and eat this is nice.
9 Books to read, glasses to read with, cameras to shoot, chairs to sit in and tables to put it all within easy reach
10 Crates of the stacking kind have various storage and structural possibilities. A piece of plywood cut to fit makes a table of it.
*Newmaker* is the spirit that drives a lifetime of creativity, and is a reflection of the *Creator* who continues to make all things new.
H.James Company is the business name for the renovation services of *Henry de Jong* since 1991. Services have been offered as sub-contractor and as contractor, but primarily as a professional craftsman working alone. Working on small to medium size jobs allows a personal committment to executing every detail with the same care, and to working one job at a time, on a steady and predictable schedule.
