The lists below are not meant to be comprehensive.
Use your own judgment.

The items listed here are just reminders... something to jog your memory about what you may want to bring.  Use common sense and your experience to flesh things out.   Just because it's not listed here doesn't mean you're allowed to forget something you need, and likewise just because it's listed here does not mean you must bring it along.

If you've got suggestions on how to improve this list, please do us all a favor and let me know so I can improve what's here.  Until then though, just print this out and use it as a guide.
