Keeping your stuff organized means you can come home Friday night, throw your gear in the car, and never have to wonder when you get to the trailhead if you forgot to pack that orange skirt.... Shit.



That made me laugh..... SO....Think I could borrow that sometime while we are on the topic??

I would never forget anything. Except for food on one trip. Gloves when ice climbing. Crampons when ice climbing trip. The really bad thing about all 3 of those trip: All three of them were with the same partner. :oops: (Sorry, Dug!)

Actually, with the way my gear is organized right now, I could be out the door for ice, rock, or skiing within about 2 minutes. But that's only because I never unpacked last time...

I was in mconnel's situation before. having everything (well almost everything) in one place makes packing go a lot faster. still forget stuff though, thats just the way it is.

You never forget anything, you just reduce pack-weight.

Gear closet... HMMMM. Square plastic tub and hanging from nails in the garage; flat plastic tub under the bed; sleeping bags are on the floor in the back of the closet; misc small items are in three drawers in my dresser;rain gear hanging in my son's closet now that he moved out; half the winter gear is my wifes hope chest in the mudroom. And I'm supposed to an organized guy. I GOT TO GET ME A GEAR CLOSET!

Pegboard rocks. This started as a mock-up, but is now semi-permanent - I finished the closet where it was supposed to go, but see no reason to move it all.

Hanging rope isn't a bad idea if it is COMPLETELY dry!

If there's still some water in it in will all go down to the bottom of the hanging rope ... If you use it every weekend, no prob, if you don't use it for two months at all: big problem!


Why? It will dry in a week whether you use it or not.

Yeah, why is that bad? If I hung a wet rope in my house it would be dry by the end of the day...

Is it just me or does most of the gear shown in this thread look like it's never used?

Who's got time to climb with all that display building and gear sorting?
