How much food and clothing, all the basic needs for four people on a week long trip?

A lot depends on when you go & what kind of food you pack.

September - October you'll bring more clothes, also maybe more hot beverages for those cool nights.

If you pack a lot of freeze dried, you take a lot less room than if you pack bread, fresh fruit, fresh/frozen food. Do you like to eat fancy, very well, or just something to fill up the tummy? :-)

Bring whatever you want to! But remember...whatever you bring...you carry.
Wherever you go...there you are!

... and no canned foods or food in jars. Plastic containers is ok, but like Bloomington Steve said... you carry it. The plastic containers need to come back out with you.

Base camp? On the move? Sometimes if you're base camping it's worth a little extra food and gear knowing that you won't have to portage with the whole shebang every day. Fishing a primary objective? All well and good but have some freeze dried back-ups just in case! My buddy Tom and I can get by with three packs for a week trip. Our personal #3's which carries clothes, sleeping bags, sleeping pad, fishing gear, toiletries and then we split who takes the tent, tarps and part of the the cook kit. The food pack is also a #3 and has the rest of the cook kit and an axe and a saw. We strap fish poles and extra paddles into the canoe and can make a portage in one trip with one taking a canoe and pack, the other double packing. On some trips where we don't go in very far and base camp we'll take a fourth pack with a few extra emenities and take turns going to get it.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Yes, when are you going? Or did you go already?
