The whole nine yards
To go canoe camping is to leave much of this behind - the kids, the car, the comfort station, the beach paraphenalia, the bikes and etc. This may not seem like more than three yards to a cottager, or six yards to those who camp in RVs or trailers, but for us, after thirty years of going the whole nine yards, we were committed to giving up stuff to get some real distance between ourselves and the nearest camper. In the end though, it wasn't all that bad.
