Fieldwork Packing List

Any seasoned field worker will amass a list of equipment to bring along on scientific expeditions and a lot of random knowledge of and strong opinions on wool sock brands, for instance. I’ve collected what I know into a Fieldwork Packing List, augmented with the help of Kenny Chiou. Pointing out any missing bits, whether via email or via a pull request, would be welcome, especially since I leave for Uganda in a week.
