my car has gas in it, so thats a start... but my camera gear is scattered and my suitcase is empty.

Gonna drive to LA tomorrow from the San Francisco Bay and be there for a few days.

Other than everything, whats that one thing you always forget to pack?

Forgot my tripod once for a 4x5 shoot.  Was interesting.  Had to prop the camera upside down on the edge of a table (so I could get the film holders into the camera) to get any shots.

I usually make a checklist of things to check off before I drive away. That has worked since.

That's crazy!  I haven't packed for LA yet either!  I guess I have the advantage of having no plans to go to LA...  big_smile
