Appendix C – Gear Check List

You have all your gear, but are you sure? Easiest way is to make a list of everything you want to bring. The night before your trip and before you pack your gear, go through your list. Make sure you have everything you need and then pack your bag accordingly. Below is a very general list I have used and modified over the years. It may be too much for some or not enough for others. However, consider this as a template and modify it to meet your comfort level and needs.
