We are tight on driving.  All seats are occupied and we don't have the trailer so only pack with duffels, NO BACKPACKS. 

Packing List Review

Make sure you have a mess kit and a sleeping pad (I'm not sure how soft the floor at Climbtime)

If you have not filled out a waiver yet, it must be done before step-off.  You will not be allowed to stay at Climbtime without this waiver.

Thanks for your help.
