PACKING LIST

 

TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR TIME AT LOST BUT FOUND, WE’VE PREPARED A HANDY PACKING LIST THAT YOU CAN USE FOR REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE GOING WITH A BIG GROUP, WE RECOMMEND PASTING IT SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU CAN ALL ACCESS IT AND MAKE CHANGES TO IT. ONE GOOD TIP IS TO WRITE YOUR NAME, IN A UNIQUE COLOR, IN PARENTHESIS AFTER EACH ITEM YOU ARE BRINGING, TO HELP YOUR WHOLE GROUP KEEP TRACK OF WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT. WHILE THIS LIST IS PRETTY LONG, IT IS BY NO MEANS EXHAUSTIVE, OF COURSE, SO FEEL FREE TO ADD ANY ADDITIONAL ITEMS YOU FEEL ARE NECESSARY TO IT!
