Click Here for a printable version of the list below. It’s handy for walking around the home while you pack. This page gets updated often, so bookmark it now!
Inspired by a long distance trip from the Midwestern to Pacific Northwestern United States, this list serves as a basic reference for the intermediate rider. Use it to your advantage! You’d be wise to note that it accounts for multiple riders. Clicking a check mark will remove an item from the list. A page refresh resets everything.
