This is my List of Packing Lists
I hope it's helpful.
I've given examples of what I have on each list, just to show what might be there. Not a complete list, and only examples.
My List of Lists:

The List of Food Categories to Think About. (road-trip snacks/meals, "share in the Line" treats, hot and cold beverages, protein, etc.)
What needs to be done to prepare any of this ahead of time? (freeze meats, re-containerize things like oatmeal, etc.)
The List of Things I'll Need for the Road Trip. (beach items, iPod, maps, motor oil, etc.)
The List of Things I Want "At Hand" In the Line, (or Just After I Get Through the Gate). (TICKET, rain poncho, sun screen, Pee Style, Un-official schedule (so I can plan work shifts) etc.)

--For Night Stage keep-me-warm
--For Bedtime keep-me-warm (fleece, not cotton!)

Each of my lists is on it's own laminated note card. I love to browse through them whenever I start to day dream about Fest!
