7 Days with Minimum Kit

I am planning to go on a canoeing and camping trip this summer. I might go with a friend of mine who really enjoys fishing. I am not great at fishing, and he doesn't have much kit, so I think this would be a good fit.

He would catch the fish. I'd cook 'em over the fire along with the bannock.

I want to bring minimal kit if possible, to make it both lightweight, but also a memorable trip where we could both learn bushcraft and minimalism lessons in the woods.
  • Flint and steel for fire, cooking
  • Cooking pot, 2 cups, 2 spoons, 2 Nalgene bottles and 2 bowls
  • Knives, axe, saw
  • Wool blankets
  • Tarp shelters
  • Compass
  • Fishing gear
  • Rope & 550 paracord
  • 2 Therm-a-Rests
  • 2 Sleeping Bags
  • Books (Rogers Mushrooms, and fiction)
  • Camera
  • 2 Legless Folding Chairs
  • Food
  • Booze
  • 2 cigars
  • Toiletries
I think that sounds basic enough. I didn't get into the varieties and quantities of booze - that would need further examination... :-)
