Convention Pre-Flight Checklist

In an effort to keep myself from getting to a con and realizing, "Holy crap, I didn't bring the ______!" I'm trying to put together a convention pre-flight checklist that I can just fill out and check off as I go. I'm posting it here for people to snag and use if they like, but also in case people can help me think of items that need to go on here that I've forgotten, or changes anybody might want to suggest. So, comments welcome!

As a suggestion, I tend to leave a bag pre-packed with the following items just in case of "Didn't have time to prep" for a show.

1) Change of Clothes/Essential Bathroom items
2) bout 100 bucks in small bills for change
3) A tie (you never know)
4) Small portfolio (mine's photos of my stuff, since I don't draw)
5) Entertainment (cards, books, etc)

It's the just in case bag, and it usually lives in my truck (minus the cash, which sits in a spot I pass every day)

It's just the emergency essentials in case you _do_ happen to forget something and can't go back.
