Notes and Suggestions

The Central Minnesota Council contingent is providing your duffel bag and daypack. Everything should fit in these.

Put water bottle on the top of your list for safety. Sunscreen should also be near the top.

Another high priority is sturdy comfortable walking shoes that have been broken in.

You will need more film than you think.

3 bath towels is a lot.

Bandannas make good washcloths that dry quickly and have many other uses.

A few plastic clothespins are handy.

You will need only a small amount of laundry detergent.

A summer weight or polar fleece sleeping bag will take up less room in your duffel.

A waterproof cushion, like a stadium seat, makes arena shows more comfortable. Elevated seats will not be permitted at the shows.

A small battery operated fan can bring welcome relief in a hot tent at night.

Medications need to be in original containers. Medication cards (provided at final meeting) will need to be completed and turned in at check in.

A medicated powder (Goldbond) is useful to treat chafing.

You will need stuff to do for long hours on the bus.
