    I do the following, so I'll always have anything I need. If I try to remember each time I go out, it's certain that I'll forget something.

    I keep everything that's not camera specific in my photo jacket. That's my Zone VI spotmeter, my Sekonic flash meter (for incident readings), cable release, step up rings (for the Hasselblad), filters (deep yellow, 85B and green), step up adapter for the Artar and lens shade for same. Also various and sundry rolls of film, note pad, a pen, and reciprocity tables. I keep this in the trunk of the car along with my tripod. When I go out I decide which rig(s) (Hasselblad, 4 x 5 or 8 x 10) I want to take and put them in the trunk. In this way I know that no matter which I selected, no essential will have been left behind. When I get to wherever it is I'm going to be shooting, I just don the jacket and I'm ready to go. Since I started doing this I haven't uttered "Oh, DAMN! I forgot whatever...." even once.

    I can usually find a work-around to leaving most things at home (though Ole's got me with forgetting the camera... make-shift pinhole?), but I'm usually at a loss as I usually forget to bring my creativity with me.
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    What is that saying? "Leave nothing but footprints and lens brushes"?
    hi!

    [quote="Les McLean"] and we've had many laughs about it over the years.
    At least you were able to laugh about it although, I bet you did not at the time. One of those situations where you have to accept what has happened, count up to a good few thousand and start again !

    One year my buddy and I went way out in the wilderness camping/photographing. The major event was me to borrow his 8x10 for the trip. Drove half a day, got ready to photograph, and the question each of had was, "Didn't you bring the ground glass?"

    Worse thing I've forgotten was my spot meter.... I was able to guess pretty close, however.

    Last trip, I forgot to pack socks. Luckily, those are a lot easier to find (and cheaper)!
    Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.
