Backpacking Supply Checklist

Along with your equipment, a Backpacking Supply Checklist will assist you assuring that you are well prepared for the trail.  Items on this list are items that you replenish each trip.  Plan carefully, space and weight should be a factor in what items you take.  

If you are going to be on the trail for a long period of time consider having items such as food, fire starter, bug be items that you walk into town and purchase or mailed to you.  When survival camping, your pack weight should be no more than 30% of your body weight.
