This is the average gear load from my 221 day solo canoe trip taken in 2014. The message and title of my adventure is: "Inspired by Wilderness" A Four Season Solo Canoe Journey. Much of the gear seen here was or is related to photography equipment. Portages consisted of 13 trips (seven with gear, six walk-backs) carrying 350-400 lbs of gear. Total distance for the trip was just under 14 miles of portages, times 13 trips, equates to 178 miles walked. One of the portages that tested my endurance and fortitude was the mile long Horse Portage along the Basswood River. It took me seven hours to complete without rest.
