Trip Checklist

You have no idea how important a trip checklist is until you are 500 miles from home and remember what you forgot. I was lucky on my first extended ride: my riding mentor provided a basic list. I still use the same list as a starting point anytime when I intend to be on the road for several days or more. The list below was for a two week self-contained ride.
