This list probably exists in several places and versions all over the interwebs, but whatever. Before you or your mom go off on some backpacking cavalcade, memorize these rules. There’s a whopping 20 of them, so I put most of them after the clicky.
1. (I’m saving the #1 spot in case I think of something that’s actually important.)
2. If it has wheels, it is too big. Leave it at home.
3. Top bunk makes the rules.
4. Rickshaw drivers are not a reliable source of condoms.
