Tasks To Do Before Traveling - A check list


This page keeps track of tasks that have to be done before we leave. As you accomplish each task, let Steve know and Steve will update the page (you are not allowed to change it here, to maintain data integrity).


Note that an entry of 'N/A' usually indicates a person does not need to do a task because their spouse, significant other, or roommate has done it, or it is irrelevant given the person's situation.
