Does she, now? No, plate bags are not necessary, though Balderick and I have a habit of buying various drinking recepticles at servive stations (Ooooh.... not service stations on way to Drum Hill!! Dwama!!)
The chair is a joke. It's my way of saying I don't care about the chair and if you really want to bring one, you can!
Lol, are there any other joke items on the list? As a newbie I'll take it as gospel and WILL pack a squirrel and chair if told to! (There actually was a little squirrel left behind on pack hol this weekend, so could manage this one!)
