These are the items on our packing list.  It also includes gear that we have fitted to the vehicle.  This short key might help understand it a bit better:

N = we have it and we haven't used it (yet)

N* = we have it and we wish we didn't

X = we don't have it

X* = we don't have it and we wish we did
