    Question What to pack/bring?

    I figure if I had this question, other people probably do as well. I have gotten lots of advice off forum, but figure we should put the information together into one place besides the camping section of the site. While that is really good, it does not cover rally specific camping which is probably pretty much the same, but never hurts to ask...

    So here are the items I figure I need to get still...
    • Sun hat
    • dog tags for id
    • camping chair
    • waterproof bag
    • cooler/ice holder


    Things that I already have/planning on taking...
    • sleeping bag
    • sleeping pad
    • sun screen
    • insect repellant
    • sleeping pad
    • flashlight/headlight
    • ear plugs
    • tylenol


    of course there are the other non-critical but just as important things like...
    • cigars
    • bottle opener
    • martini fixings
    • location indicator
    • humor


    So what else is there to bring?

    If you are really pressed for space, a side case will work as a cooler of sorts. I used one more than once after setting up camp. I now have a collapsable cooler.

    If you arent into the whole kermit chair experience, you can get a collapsable chair at walgreens for around 6 bucks.

    Check out my bag when we meet at Versailles, it is a good deal I think.

    A hat is a personal choice, but I have always wanted a blue pith helmet with a lightning bolt on the front.

    Oh jeez, lesseee.....

    Book to read in the tent. Walkman and CDs, with headphones (or MP3 player for the fully digital)

    Maps. They're fun to study in the tent or at a picnic table.

    Drinking vessels for hot and cold beverages.

    Flask of bourbon.

    Cigar cutter and lighter.

    First aid kit.

    Tungsten E and Franklin Covey planner.

    Shower thongs (for your feet, smartass!)

    pack towel (smaller than a regular towel by a factor of about 4)

    digital camera, charger, extra CF cards, spare battery

    Toothpicks for martinis

    small bottle of vermouth

    road books, i.e. National Park guides

    Pillow. Don't forget one of these.

    Hmmm since I don't bother putting any garnish on my Martinis, I can skip the toothpicks.
