I like lists.  If I go to the store for 3 things I make a list because inevitably I’ll get distracted and forget something on the list.

Kayaking Checklist

I also found a Ten Essentials checklist that had some great ideas.  If you are going remote camping – even in a vehicle – it’s smart to have a ten essetials kit.

By the way, check out other articles on REI’s Expert Advice page – really good stuff.
