The Checklist: Everything You'll Need At The Show

This week I’ve set up a complete list of everything you need to take with you to the competition. I know it looks a little overwhelming, but you’ll find most of it can be kept in your trailer for the season.
Needing only to pack and unpack the perishables before and after your trip.
I keep this printed and on a clip board in my trailer for quick reference. If I run out of something at the show I put it on my clip board to replace when I get home.
This way, getting ready to travel takes me no time at all.
