Whenever I am packing for a big trip I always use a list to check off that I have everything I need. I may not need all of the things listed, but it is helpful to scan the list and jog your memory for something you would have normally forgotten about. Items are categorize into tabs along the bottom. I update this list fairly regularly. Check out my new Touring Tips page for updates or you can subscribe to the RSS feed and be notified when I make changes.
