Canoe trip essentials: bug spray, first-aid kit, dry bag; non-essential: laptop
“Florida is new territory to them,” Woodward said. “They’ve already done Hawaii, the West Coast and New York. Florida has a great reputation for being a tourism destination, and they like casinos and cruise ships.” So if we have to “prep” for anything in Florida, maybe it should be aimed toward becoming a better tourism destination for the Chinese, rather than trying to stock up on pocket chainsaws, freeze-dried foods and solar-powered radios. “The major disadvantage we have is that there are no direct flights between Florida and China,” Woodward said. “We’d like to see direct flights to China from Miami or Orlando.” In the meantime, the rest of us can be making some welcoming changes on our own. For starters, it might be wise to change the name of the Sawgrass Mills mall to Lemongrass Mills to give it a more Southeast Asian vibe. And we’ll have to come up with another name for the algae-producing, fish-killing phenomenon in the Gulf of Mexico known as “red tide.” They might take that name as an insult. Maybe these little gestures will add up.

Cottage Life magazine has come out with a list of things you’ll need and stuff you can leave behind. (For example: need bug spray, first-aid kit, sleeping bag; leave behind laptop computer, hair dryer.) Particularly important is something that will protect all your belongings in the event of rain or a tipped canoe. The best option much better than garbage bags, which will tear and let water in is a dry bag, according to the magazine. This can be purchased at an outfitting shop. Consider either one large one or two small ones. Another durable choice is a plastic barrel, which can also serve as a container for food that can be strung up in a tree away from animals. One such barrel sold by MEC is “critter-proof but not bear-proof,” the outfitter says on its website.
