RESTATEMENT

Some few weeks ago, I posted a list of all the things I’d need to get – or at least, look into – for the trip.

I am going to repost the list, then go through it and pick out what I’ve acquired by putting it in bold. (Things that I’ve picked out, but not yet hit the “but it now” button for, will be bold italicized.)
