Despite my detailed list complete with check marks next to “underwear” I arrived at our island outpost this past week with only the pair I had on. Luckily I was loaned (OK, given) a pair and I washed a pair once a day and wore the other and repeated the process all week. In our group’s defense I was offered a total of three but I made due with one plus mine.
That was a first for me with 25 plus years of Canadian adventures.

I Did Forget Something
I forgot three things. First, my fishing skills have deteriorated after 8 1/2 months away from fishing northern waters so I didn’t bring my A game.
Secondly, I brought my “Michigan” tackle box instead of my “Canada” tackle box. That actually proved not to be a problem.
And last but not least, I forgot what a jerk a Canadian Customs Agent can be. I didn’t let him ruin my trip though!!!
Can’t wait until next year to do it all again........
Thanks to The Lord for the opportunity to enjoy a week in a special place with special people.

|Pink Unicorn||A few years ago, I forgot to purchase the entire second page of my checklist. No toilet paper, paper towels, etc. That was a rough year!|

besides if I left it up to some of these guys we would have cereal for breakfast, dry sandwiches for lunch, and fish for dinner everyday. We have our fish, but we also will have rib eyes, grilled chicken, I have done a whole Ham, Chicken Marinara, and much more.

I'm a list guy too!
I always have a list. My grocery list the most fun. It includes both the shopping list and the menu. I play with it between trips and it keeps me feeling like I'm doing something useful. I've got 4 years (9 trips) of lists and menus in a single spreadsheet each on their own page so I can easily reference previous years and make adjustments. Being the chef I'm also the "grocery getter". If we forget something it's on me. One year I forgot to pack the frozen food in the cooler. What a shock when unloaded at the cabin. No brats, no steaks, no pizza. That was several years ago and I still hear about it. We wasted an afternoon driving to a grocery store. My spread sheet has a column for "got it" and also for "packed". I check it twice just like Santa.

What am I forgetting?
I have been using two lists: one for groceries / meals and the other for other items.
Have a clip board which I use when grocery shopping as well as packing the car.
Happy to say that I have not forgotten anything i many years.
One ride home, I go through the grocery list and make changes to reflect what food items were / were not popular. The clip board makes it easy to write on in the car.
That list gets printed off the computer when I start shopping a good month before we leave for Canada.
I know many guys buy their groceries on the ride up to Canada but I prefer to buy while at home. This allows me the opportunity to shop weekly sales and freeze certain items.
