Funniest thing I have heard in a long time, boy was she P.O'ed. According to her she told her husband she was getting out.
Sounds like the episode of A Prairie Home Companion for July 21, 2012, during the "News from Lake Wobegon" where an elderly farmer left his wife at the gas station thinking that she was still napping in the back seat.

I agree. It's really the only way.

AND...when I think of it I have to write it down right then and there or I'll forget.

Now that we're traveling FT, our list really has grown short because we carry everything with us all the time.

We have pictures of our kids and grand kids that always travel with us.
I would hate to leave those behind.

We always spend the first night of a long trip at a campground about 5 miles from home. Easy to go back and get what you forget and easy to get an early start the next morning.

Wallet.......

That way you do not have to ask your friends to root through your dirty clothes hamper to find it and send the wallet to you from Ca to Oregon.

Lists....different list for different trips. If it is a Flyball weekend with the dogs we have a list that is heavy with their stuff. Beach trip, different list. Mountain's, different list. Excel is a great tool!

Not for me,,, I'm too much of a cheapskate!

I'd say to just set up camp in the front yard and then if we discovered we forgot something, simply walk back into the house to get it.
