    Great point about a checklist. I have two checkboxes for each item on my checklist. One to find and check the gear. This usually consists of getting it out of storage, checking it over, and then placing it on the table or in the packing area. The second checkbox is for packing. This means that I have actually packed the item into my pack. Items that I wear or carry (like trekking poles) don’t get checked until they are actually worn or put in the car. I bring my list with me, in case I wonder if I remembered something. Knowing I only check things off when they are packed has alleviated much of that anxiety.

    This is very helpful. I am just in the research phase of planning my trip. As I read this, I felt like the process you described relates easily to Triathlon of w I am more familiar. I look forward to reading more
    Thank you
