Gear Check Lists

While in the Navy I learned the value of a good, user friendly check list.  Brian Green (at Brian's Backpacking Blog has a interesting post about checklists.  At the end of his post he shares a blank template.  Good stuff.

"In addition to using a gear list to track weight it can be used as a checklist tool to help you gather, inspect, and pack all of your gear before a trip. There’s nothing worse than getting a few miles into a hike and realizing that you left a critical piece of gear at home on the kitchen table. Your gear list will help you to avoid that from happening. I have three check box columns on the left of the spreadsheet I use that are designed to walk me through the this process: Find, Check, Pack."
