I LOVE spreadsheets. Not only are they great for keeping track of all the data I need for my day to day job, but they are also a fantastic way to keep track of GEAR choices for backpacking trips.
While I usually work from a master list (usually solo-pack, for when I’m in a group but carrying all my own gear), I’ve recently started making trip-specific lists, which I will be sharing here. Not only does it help me remember things I need to bring, but it’s also a good reminder to myself for future reference.
After somehow not hearing about this tool until a few months ago, I’ve started to switch my gear lists over to lighterpack.com instead of using google spreadsheets. I’m loving some of the features of this tool, such as the ability to search and add previous items (vs. the mass copy/paste that I used to do for specific items I was switching out in google).
