Despite spychic's displeasure with not getting his interests met, I thought it was a good article about dealing with the cold when out "paddling" and, as he stated, in canoe camping. One suggestion regarding the tarps...when you use the clever two-paddle method, you have to take down the support when you want to go out for a paddle. Check out Dan Cooke's solution at www.cookecustomsewing.com where he has a collapsable center post and a reinforced method of securng the center post in the center of the tarp. It works great.
Now, how 'bout some more canoe talk ???
