Starting to get gear together

I am starting to get my gear together for the trip. Normally for a hike this is pretty easy as I have that pretty dialed in after 5 long distance hikes but a kayak trip is a little differnent. I haven't picked up my kayak yet but I know exactly what one I am planning to use, an Eddyline Sitka LT. I will pick this up right before the trip as that way I don't have to worry about storing or transporting it. I am actually planning to pick it up in Bozeman, which is about 30 miles from the start, and I will pick it up a day or two before I start. I got a car top carrier, a PDF, a paddle, a paddling jacket, a locking system for the boat, a bunch of safety gear such as paddle float, Bilge pump, a marine radio, and some marine expoxy for emergency repairs. Besides this I picked up a camp chair, why not as I have the room to carry it, and a couple of dry bags. I also picked up a pole for my tent as I usually use hiking poles for ten poles but I will not be bringing the hiking poles on this trip.

Other than this new gear I will not be bringing much more than I usually take hiking. Althoough I think I will take one more set of clothes than usual as I will have the room for it and why not be a little more comfortable if I can. I will be using my phone a lot for navigation I have maps that are available without reception. I will have paper maps too but I am not too worried about getting lost as it is a river and I just need to keep heading downstream. But the maps will help in figuring out how far to a resupply, locations of campgrounds, and such.
