Well, my bag is not nearly sufficient. I've been working more on my mind. I've been focusing on the "how" and the "why", as opposed to "what" gear I'm buying.

Personally I always seems to remember more easily the 7Ps more than the meaning of the 5Ps. wink Hmm, I wonder if that is on my companies Acronym Server... grin Somehow I doubt it.

Then, if you can lift it, see how far you can carry it :-)

If you can't lift it, reconsider the contents. Repeat as necessary.

Am_Fear hit it with his link: the 5 P's (or 7, military dependent), are Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance. With the addition of the other two, its Propor Prior Planning Prevents (fill in blank) Poor Performance. Being this is a family oriented site, I say stick with the 5P's-although I will use the 7 in my personal life smile

Cool... The word "prior" seems redundant, but it's too late to change it now.

Well, that version does come from the military side of things, where redundancy is prized... grin

I always heard the 7P's as "Proper Previous Planning Prevents [censored] Poor Performance."

When I first heard it back in the 70's it was 6P's: Prior Planning Prevents P*** Poor Performance.
Adding "Proper" to make it 7P's seems to be redundant. . . and British (no offense).
