Some Event Packing Lists

These lists were first created by Morgana Isolde of Ander Hall for a Chatelaine / Newcomers class in Darach (2002). They are meant to help you brainstorm and think of things you might want to pack. You might not want or need everything in any list or category, so feel free to adjust the various lists for your own needs.
