for those of you who haven't gone to war before (or those who've had a disasterous war due to lack of organization), a few general hints on packing:
1) Start Early
2) Make a written list or spreadsheet and check things off as they are packed; when i start gathering things for war i also note where the item is currently as there are 3 different "staging areas" in my house, where it is packed (ie: flashlights are in blue trunk), and mark the boxes, etc clearly to make arrival at war easier (we frequently don't get around to unloading personal crap until after dark the 1st saturday and having an easy to read list helps make sure i can find the things i must have in order to get the tent up and be able to go to bed
3) Set up a staging area prior to loading so that you can make sure all the bags/boxes/etc are put into your vehicle
4) Make sure tarps are easily accessible - we've gotten rain on the 1st night, and being able to get things under cover immediately is a necessity
5) Wear comfortable work type clothes that you don't mind getting dirty for arrival - trust me, no one cares how you look when you're unloading your 300 pounds of crap and setting up your tent

other things to know... there is a price club/costco about 20 minutes from war, right where you get off the pa turnpike... giant eagle (the local grocery store) will give out discount cards and check writing priviledges to out of state residents w/ proper id... make sure you carry your id all the time; you will get carded to get into parties and/or be served booze at war

if i haven't ever told you before, i am telling you know...
you are amazing...
you are a goddess!

thank you for making my life a little easier once again...

:)

6/24/03 23:01 (UTC) - "toys", eh?
that's all i'm going to say on that :-)

oh yeah, did that cooler ever make it back to home with you, or is it in storage near War? one less thing for us to buy this year...

see y'all soon,

ro (& Kaz)

i remember taking a cooler from you to keep until this war, what i can't remember is what it looked like; i think it may be in the attic at our house, if not it's in kindred storage - do you remember what color/size it was? we have 5 people who do war at the house so there are a shitload of coolers in the attic right now
6/28/03 20:46 (UTC) - Re: "toys", eh?
haven't figured out the description yet. trying to remember to ask Kaz, but she may not remeber either. if it helps, it was brand new that War, was in really good shape by the end, and i think it had the split-top thing. average size (not small, not immense), average color (like maybe blue, but could have been green or red - definitely not puce). i know that helps so much, huh? if nothing jumps out and says "Me!", yell back and well figure it out. fuck it - as long as we have a decent size cooler in good shape to use for the 2 weeks, we don't care where the fuck it came from :-)

There you are.

(i'm a moron and heard "thundergirl" at Kindred's party, so i went looking for the (wrong) name on Kim's list of friends, and couldn't find it. i was going to call her tonight and ask for your addy, as well as Brady's and Beth's and a couple of other peoples'.

anyway. howdy :-) i will talk more later, but i am running late to meet friends i haven't seen in weeks, and get stuff for a potluck dinner. you're on my friends list too now, and you can see my little update about "what i did at Pennsic"...

Now, *that's* funny.

-- Stacia has 500 lbs. o' War crap too - been organizing and listmaking since she got home last year. ;)
6/25/03 9:41 (UTC) - Re: "Cloak: Moo"
tis rather funny, the scary thing is, zooom has a lot more clothes than i do, and i'm fairly sure half of them aren't even on the spreadsheet
6/25/03 7:11 (UTC) - Thank you!!!
I've got three running lists at this point and reading yours reminded me of all the things I forgot on mine.

:)
