Post your camping / gear lists!

Been wanting to do this for a long time where I can print this out.
I have also cut way back on the items that I take.
One big item that will be more than likely stay home is the Cabelas picnic table.
I can use the new Slumberjack table I bought to hold the chuckbox to eat at.

This sounds like a lot, but a lot of packs into the ECS cases, and surprisingly the FJ Cruiser can hold a lot if you pack right.

Hey, I've created an android app to help organize gear like this. It's called "My Gear Pack", free in Google Play. I just released it last month but I'm adding features weekly. I'm a full time engineer and this was just a project so that I could get my own stuff organized better but I figured it could be useful to other. It's a little rough around the edges so please go easy on me.

Search for "My Gear Pack" in google play, it has a picture of a mountain because I am awful at photoshop and I don't have any money to pay an artist.

Let me know what you think, I'm a long time lurker and have a lot of respect for the experience of Expedition Portal's members.

I've put up my gear lists in the app (they are shared in the Gear Pack Library), but they are pretty meager because I just do some weekend trips in a jeep.

I know this is old, But they have a great app for that, I keep it on my Iphone

New on my list of equipment, although this should probably be in the category of tools: one laminated instruction sheet, extra large print, for tying 12 common knots.

I think among the most frustrating of my Basic Holes in Knowledge is how to tie, from memory, a few basic knots. Until I'm able to think through how the knot works and can remember how to tie it, a cheat sheet would be right up there with matches in terms of utility.

Probably better to keep a laminated sheet for reference 'in the field' for things like knot tying, though I agree with you... there are some great apps for that now. There is also a great app for making packing lists (there are probably many) called PackCentric. You can have different lists so you can have your 1-2 night camp list, your 3-5 night camp list, your vacation list, etc. It also saves each item you add to a list so that you can add it to another list easily in the future. In addition, you can categorize all your items for better visibility and, of course, check them off as you pack (they move to the bottom of the list).
 
My truck is empty for the first time since 2005. I am going to document each item again and go through methodically.
