Hunting and Gathering of Gear

I am preparing for my first field days. I have been out in the field to botanize but I have never been the one in charge. This time is different. I'm running the show. In order to keep from going crazy I have decided to post a list of supplies that I will need to hunt down and gather before going into the field. This is the first major trip that I'm planning. So hopefully after this it will be easier to get my gear in order.
