The following is a checklist to help when packing for a multi-day trek. Many, if not most, of the items on this list are in the "duuhhhh!" category, but you just never know what you might leave behind. Kinda sucks when you have to search for a large, soft, non-poisonous leaf because you forgot the TP. I've marked a number of items as optional, though some people--including myself--think some of those things are absolutely necessary, while other things I've not listed as optional they'd never take. At any rate, I hope you'll find this checklist useful. (Email me if you can think of anything important that I've omitted ... excluding shotguns and microwave ovens, that is.)
