DW likes planning & packing as much as the trip

There are a lot of aspects to getting ready for the road. And I love watching my wife get us ready. She gets so excited about making sure things like enough meds are taken, what the menu is going to be, what should we take for the fuzzheads. She loves small travel sized things like toothpaste, shampoo, etc. Gotta get plenty of those. She is currently obsessed with weight ( probably not a bad thing ). EVERYTHING has to go across the scales, right down to a pair of socks.

I really think she enjoys this as much or more than the actual trip.

I wish I was so lucky. At times I think my DW thinks we can just pull the trailer out of storage straight to the campground without any of the packing, getting ready, etc...

You are a lucky man. A camping strip for us always involves a stop to a Super wal-mart for food, clothing items, and other items forgotten.

Mine loves the packing and planning too. We have a checklist, mostly food items or location/weather specific items.

I love that part too! I have pages of lists for our Yellowstone trip this summer, and it's still 2.5 months away. Menus, maps, itinerary plans, clothing, etc. I'm sure my husband thinks I'm nuts.

My DW enjoys cleaning, packing and shopping for the trip. Hell, all I got to do is ask which way.

We use lists, lists, and more lists for our trips. DH used to make fun of my lists... until he forgot to pack underwear. LOL - to Walmart we went!

any one have any lists they dont mind sharing? We brought home our first TT a few weeks ago and on our first outing realized we were missing a bunch of things. I'd love to have a good list to start from... so that maybe I remember to pack the coffee next time...
