        Once again I find myself packing, and wishing I had a really nice "list" that was configurable based on weather and company and length of stay kinda stuff.

        Come on you web geeks - get on it. Oh wait... that's me.

        Something that I could tell who was coming, and would be smart enough to know that if Lego is coming, I must bring a frisbee. If it's gonna rain = bring a towel (I know, you should always travel with a towel). If it's gonna be sunny - bring sun scream: WHAM! I just remembered something I would have forgot.

                Ok, here is a BIG ONE.

                Just got back from Tux today..

                At the notch Friday night my friend informed me he forgot HIS SKI BOOTS !

                So he became my climbing partner, and camera man....

                Wow, what a thing to forget.

Obviously you can trade a couple beers for use of someone's skis+boots for a couple hours, but I posit that you could even find sleeping bag space, use of a digital camera, cell phone to call home and lots of other wonderful food to trade for... and other stuff... and trade it all for bacon and beer.

                    Sounds like Oscar Mayer has the same idea: http://www.baconbarter.com/

                      Trades

                      May 2008, ran into a group (squad) of marines at Tucks. Traded some of my food for a not insignificant quantity of Jack Daniels.

                            First time I went to Tux it was for sledding and we forgot to take the Sherbie down instead of Tux trail. Heavily laden sled hit a tree. It was my dad's fault. I still haven't seen a replacement, 24 years later. (wtb orange sled that's super fast, not like these wimpy sleds they make now)

                            First time I skied Tux we forgot that cross-country skis wouldn't work so good in left gully. Used em anyway.

                            Second time, forgot my poles. /facepalm

                            One time I saw a guy do the headwall on an ironing board. Pretty sure he forgot his laundry and iron though.

                              Forgot my shell jacket and shell pants....discovered it after driving to the Chich Chocs and waking up next day to load the day pack for Day One of eight days. Horrified, I drove up to Ste Annne du Mont, 42 kilometers North from Camping du Mont Albert, and scored some get-by/make-do quality gear. It was warm, so my softshell jeans were enough, but the jacket came in very handy! Insulated safety reflectorized bib-pants and nice, micro-fleece lined, shell jacket for 91CAD together. Very lucky, each was the last in my size.

                              Checklist from now on!
