“Take With Me” Checklist

 IMG_0466

The Bergalia Boys checklist below is a great master checklist, but on most trips you won’t need quite a few of the items. And if you are like me you won’t have room to take them all. For that reason my own list follows. There are some items that the Bergalia Boys’ list does not include that I feel are critical, e.g. a journal and pen. You’ll want to remember your journey and it’s easy to forget a lot of details. So let’s begin with that item and I’ll build my own complete list as I prepare to leave…

  • Journal and Pen
  • Camera (and possibly tripod)
  • Laptop (with photo processing software, word processing & blogging capability)

The following list was developed by the Bergalia Boys for their Circle to Circle motorcycle journey– from the Arctic Circle to the Antarctic Circle. This checklist is a guide for a multinational motorcycling adventure journey. Smaller journeys will require only some of these items. Plan accordingly. Take into account your route and how much you can actually fit on your motorcycle (or in your vehicle).
