  Not sure yet on water

I have two camel back water bladders one is 50 fluid ounce other I think is around 100 fluid ounces. Never used the camel backs for paddling. Not sure if it would just be better to use plastic bottles. I have two 1 liter collapsible bottles. Plus a few hard type plastic bottles. Never had ANY problem with two 20 fluid ounce bottles in deck bag. Lean kayak right over on side while sculling to get wet to cool off.I could try wearing a camel back on the outside of PFD. But thinking I will just use bottles. I just want enough water during paddling. The Platypus gravity filter is fast. Does 1.75 liters per minute.

Should test paddle fully loaded this weekend at local beach. Since I only adding about 50 pounds not thinking it will be that big a deal.

Just checked weather dot com for Killarney and for next ten days low temp at night are all above 60F so having a 40F sleeping bag seems like plenty to me.

No custom bulkheads so there is space in front of footpegs but since I got rid of LARGE sleeping bag I have plenty of room now in hatches. Old bag was taking up about three times the space new bag does. New bag has compression bag wit it.
