Allow yourself a little luxury. Yeah, people give me a hard time when on a lunch break during a one day group paddle I break out a small table and chair to eat my sandwich. But you know what? I am comfortable, and it is really nice. The table is awesome when cooking, and the chair keeps your bottom off the rocks. Both pack tiny in my kayak. Your version of luxury maybe a really cush sleeping pad. Or that super fluffy down bag. What ever it is, have something that makes you smile. Particularly on long trips.
