Question Camping on Isle Royale looking for tips.

I'll be heading up to Isle Royale next week for a weeks worth of camping, fishing, and hiking. We'll be taking boats across on the ferry and traveling around to the North Side of the island. Birch Island, McCargo Cove, Minong Ridge, etc. are all destinations that I have heard of. Along with the boats we will have 2 canoes that we will portage into Chickenbone Lake for Walleye fishing.

This is the first time that I have ever taken a trip like this, but the group I am going with, this is at least their 10th trip. They started in '79.

As far as what to bring, I think I have the basics covered, and we get to pack somewhat heavy since we are taking the boats and all.

Is there anything that you all would consider a must for a trip such as this? For those of you that have done it, what was the single best item to have along with you?

I took my digital camera, a few extra camera batteries, my GPS with NiMHs, and my Brunton Solaris solar powered battery charger. I kept my GPS powered on at all times (I hiked 92.7 miles in 14 days) and personally took 1283 pictures...and was able to loan out batteries so that our total picture count topped 2000. I also took a ring and proposed to my girlfriend (we're getting married in 9 days). Trip of a lifetime, for sure.
