I use this web site to custom create lists. One account for opening in the spring, and one for each trip. It is also super easy to update it on the fly.

I was going to post one of my checklists because I'm proud of it, and I can be OCD, but uhh, damn. Nevermind.

Check Lists

I learned as a Navy Pilot, flying single seat prop and jet aircraft off (and on) aircraft carriers, that checklists are the mark of an incompetent pilot!

Checklist

As long as I don't forget the wife, good to go! If I left without her, then hell to pay and probably best not return. Oh, and the beer! There is already to much stuff in the MH as it is, I could lose or forget few things and it would not matter.

I used checklists as a pilot routinely especially IFR. I am a believer.
