Rationale Column on 03/30/2010 20:31:06 MDT Print View

I always include a "Rationale" Column in my gear list in which I write the reasoning behind my gear choice for each item. This allows me to refine my gear list. It helps me decide what to leave at home by spotting items that are unnecessary for the trip.

You'd be surprised how much this helps. Try it.

I do the same thing, I title the column: WHY?

I have to answer WHY or it stays behind.

M!

Is 'BECAUSE' an adequate answer?

That would make it fall into the luxury items category.
