Adamah Packing List

**Packing in 2020:

1.     Each potter has 3-4 boxes for packing greenware and finished work coming home from a workshop. Put the boxes together BEFORE the trip starts, fill each with packing materials, and measure them. Throw pots according to the size of boxes you have selected. VERY easy to know the size of pieces to throw and to know they will all fit coming home. 

2.     Roof carrier works well. Try using just ratchet straps through the grommets next year. May need to buy one more ratchet strap since they are not the same length and one may be too short. 

3.      Use soft carriers for clothes to go on roof as we did in 2019. Pottery tools can also go on roof as well as plastic/wood bats.

4.       Take tools and bats in grocery fabric bags if we want to. Works fine on the roof. 

5.        Northern route through the UP is excellent: good roads, pleasant, no traffic. Use it!

6.         Each person packs a "go bag" for overnights at Jane's and in motel.
