    I found the following list off a blog link from the HtC site and thought I'd share my modified version.
    • Shoes (2 pair) - or you know - bare/Luna/VFFs ;)
    • Socks (4 pair) - or at least one to keep feet warm during non-running times.
    • Calf Compression sleeves
    • Change of Clothes (3)
    • Warm clothes for non-running time
    • Gloves, always bring gloves!
    • Light running jacket
    • The Stick
    • Body Glide
    • Amphipod Xinglet (reflective vest)
    • Flashing red light
    • Headlamp
    • Billed Hat/Visor (Beanie for night running?)
    • Endurolytes (or any electrolyte type alternative)
    • Recoverite (or protein recovery post-run)
    • Good, Nutritious, Wholesome Food
    • Yoga mat / sm blanket / sm pillow
    • Towel / toiletries
    I added yoga mat as a suggestion as sleeping on hard floors in a school gym or wherever wasn't that great.
    Please feel free to add suggestions to this thread and let me know what you want me to bring from Washington, and what food I can contribute.

    I was hoping it was because we were going to have a big yoga party too!

    I have a packing list I will upload next time I'm home (tomorrow?)

    Biggest suggestion I can make is how you pack your running clothes. Three complete sets of running clothes, each packed in their own ziploc bag, along with a washcloth in each bag. Change out of old running clothes and sponge bath ASAP. Helps you, and everyone around you, feel much better!

    Other things I have found helpful in the past: space is of absolute importance in the vans. The less you can bring with you, the better. I have my stuff down to a backpack, plus a food bag. Other essentials include a headlamp, food, something to sleep in (sleeping bag), and something to wear at night while not running, it gets colder in the coastal range than you'd think.

    Real packing list to come.

    oh, forgot about the sleeping situation. There are no indoor facilities along the course. All sleeping will be in fields. I suggest a sleeping bag that can handle the cold, plus a tarp to lay on. You'll want something between your bag and the ground especially if your bag is goose down like mine.
