what do you forget

Saw this on FB and thought I would ask on here. What do you forget when you go camping?
Mine seems to be a food item that we need for 1 of our meals.

One time we forgot wash rags for the dishes. Paper towels worked ok but we never did forget again.

Back in our tent camping days, I forgot the sleeping bags on an early summer trip to the Sierras. COLD nights with just a couple of blankets.

Forgot them only ONCE!

I once forgot my arrival and departure checklists (I.e., things to do and order to do them when we setup and takedown). This made for a much longer departure the day we left.

Now, I've got them on the iPad as well as hard copy.

Over the years list goes on & on ................. even with lists we manage to forget something....... The DW & I often go separately at different times often & that always leads to I thought you packed it........... We usually take a week or more to pack a little at a time for a longer trip or do a last minute camping trip which always leads to forgetting something.

Can't forget the dogs they are in before I can get the truck door all the way open

WE are real bad we have met in town ran errands got supper drove home & realized we left the other car in town.......... so camping we just deal with it.

...and the absolutely worst item we ever forgot (twice) was coffee! There is nothing as disappointing as waking up on a beautiful morning to find we had to do without a pot of freshly-brewed coffee.

This past weekend I forgot my battery drill for stabilizing jacks. I have a crank so
it wasn't a biggie when we arrived but-- it was pouring rain when we left and it
took a long time to hand crank those jacks back up. And the corner gutters were
draining right down on me the whole time!!

I now have a rain suit stashed in the trailer.
And yes we have a pack list, we just got complacent from so many years
of camping and didn't check the list very carefully.
Lesson learned- again!

Did that once about 6 yrs ago and now I never take the battery drill out of the trailer or the extra battery & charger. I have 4 Sears battery drills. Over the yrs when replacing batteries, it has only cost $10-$15 more for a drill & 2 batteries than just 2 batteries, so just bought another drill set.
