WD, well said on your last reply. This thread isn't about only bringing things to get by in an emergency (sorry Lori), but to see how few you could bring and still have a good trip. Maybe not smelling the best afterwards, but a trip that makes you think more about less. smile
Thank you Lori for bringing in the survival thinking. More food for thought for many.

Thanks all for contributing, I stirred up some interest with a few folks I bp with a few times a year. We've done some theme trips, which were fun and inflicted little pain on us all.
