Packing for adventure and a wedding is a huge challenge, but beetbeets pulls it off with a finely tuned list. You can tell from the linked reddit post that beet beets thought a lot about his list and packed very wisely.

Love how he lists packing a neck gaiter, but mentions his wife stole it. Does that count as him packing it?

I don't like anything extra around my neck. Even turtlenecks are too much. There is a new hipster style of buttoning the top of a dress shirt. I don't like that either as my neck is a bit wide and I always feel strangled

Packing two hats seems a bit much.

Dryer Sheets

Beetbeets mentions wanting febreeze and/or dryer sheets for the trip and I agree. When its humid and hot out, keeping a packed bag is a real challenge and anything helps.

Your clothes won't dry well in humid weather and forget about bringing a towel along.

Packing a Wedding Suit

beetbeets mentions traveling for a wedding which is super interesting and tough to pack for. Suits are bulky and take up a lot of room. Also, it is tough to pack a suit so it doesn't get wrinkly during travel.
