Some good points but not aimed at those of us with a teardrop.
This is a subject that comes up from time to time.
I have a very complete first aid kit which does need to be gone through and updated.
I also have a very complete tool and spares kit including wheel beings and test equipment for the electrical systems...

I skimmed the list quickly, and thought of paper towels and paper plates. And garbage bags. Gotta have garbage bags. One man's necessity is another's "Yuck." Why don't we have a "Yuck" smilie? :shrug:
I'll burn that bridge when I come to it.

Very comprehensive list. I can see that as being helpful (with the addition of some things that SC and capn mentioned) for a prospective full timer, but waaaaay overkill for weekend warriors. What works for some people will not work for others.

I would guess that all of us have some sort of list we use for our camping excursions.
I put mine in the form of an Excel spreadsheet and print it out for each trip. It is sort of sectioned off so,I do not have to review items that are not pertinent to any particular trip.

I awlays add new items to it as I find the need. Most items do not get crossed off, but rather put into an "optional" category..

love seeing different lists of what people carry in their teardrops - it's the same as seeing everyone's different version of a teardrop - "ideas" we are all, always looking for new and different ideas - kind of another sort of fun-nes that goes along with the teardrop thing! There's always that one item that you will see on someone's list that will jump out at you "why didn't I think of that?" :thumbsup: that or "I didn't think of that" and should have!! :thinking: And Yes, there is always the extra STUFF that you though you needed to carry only to find later - why am I carrying that? And of course, there always that - if I have with me, I'll probably never need it, BUT it's when you don't have it, you than need it!!! :oops:

I am also of the "more is better", and "prepare for all eventualities" persuasion, but if I ever need a tenth of all the medical supplies you've listed, I might need to carry a doctor along with me, as well.

Ya can't go camping without a rubber snake. It would be immoral and unethical. Any Cub Scout can explain how to operate one.

Mandatory equipment.
