  I'm with them but......

I'll go along with renting. It saves you gas getting there (car that gets 35 instead of my truck or mini van with a canoe strapped to the top) which offsets some of the rental costs. Never thought about rent to own but if your only gonna use it once a year I wouldn't even do that. If you do you are back to having to haul it which negates any gas savings and once you own it you have to maintain it.

But........200lbs in gear?!. Some cutting back may be in order unless you aren't portaging at all. For seven days we generally carry about 130lbs and are gonna cut back on that some. Definetly wouldn't want anymore. On the dog food note, buy a pack for the dog and make him carry it.
