Stay at a lake, have a blast :
Without spending lots of time in the cockpit of a canoe, you simply will not have built up the muscles needed to paddle for 8 hours at a stretch.
Keep it simple for the first go around. Play on the water, paddle for a few hours, come back to base camp. Hang out, BBQ, take a nap, and then do it all again the next day. It should be fun, not an ordeal of survival.
