How long does it take you to get your packing routine straightened out?
At the start I pack in a reasonable way, then refine it over the next few days as I establish a routine. I unfortunately don't get out very often so I can't rely on the previous routine, as I can't remember it, and in any case conditions change. Once I'm in the groove I know where everything is and can pack, unpack and find things quickly.
My wife apparently never develops a routine, as far as I can tell. Each day things are to be found in different pockets or stuff sacks or sides of her pack, and she always has to spend time hunting for whatever she needs. She's like this at home, too (with luck she won't read this!).
Do you get into a packing routine, and if so, how long does it take?
