Does anyone have an arrival and departure checklist they use to help set up camp and with departing camp? If not, maybe we could build one up with all the expertise we have on this forum to help newbies like myself-to-be. Angie

Hi Angie! Great idea if some of the old hands could develope a specific BT Checklist. Maybe as a starting reference point you could have a look at :- groups.msn.com/Caravanersforum and then go to 'Before Moving Off'; 'Pre-Trip Preparation; and then 'Documents', then explore 'Planning your first big trip' and 'Camper packing List'. Some useful stuff possibly Regards Griff

yes thanks griff, thats the sort of thing i am thinking of. friends of mine have a small checklist for "his and hers" duties to do and I think it will take us a little while to get in the swing of things. I don't particularly want to have an expensive mistake e.g. forgetting to lock the awning in place when a checklist might have helped quite easily. Angie

Anthony, do you and Cindy share this list of duties, or does Cindy focus on getting the girls organised and leave you to it? Would there be benefit in splitting into an indoor and outdoor list if Ivan and I shared the duties? Angie

The hard part will be remembering where the check list is so that you can check it. Brian

Hello Angie, Cindy here ... When we pack up I'm always in the van and he who must be obeyed is outside the van. We did not set out to do it that way it just happened. One thing we both do at the end is check the list separately. That way we can blame each other !! I know this seems a bit stereotypical but it seems to work. Could I trust him to put the toilet lid down ? It doesn't matter who's in or out ; there is not enough space inside to both do it. Regards Cindy

Thanks Cindy, I think we will most likely operate similar to you and Anthony. But probably we will separate the lists and then arm and crosscheck cabin doors before takeoff. (oops Sorry, in preflight mode - that's wishful thinking - only 391 days to go) Angie p.s. And i don't really believe that bit about "he who must be obeyed" living at your house but we can let him dream on - after all it is 3 against 1!
