I have to agree with Rachel & Dave. Stuff that doesn't seem heavy at 1st can VERY quickly get heavy when lugging it to & from your pitch. I suggest adding a shoulder strap to anything that you can, and finding double uses for everything.

Always travel with a few wooden wedges for door stops. It is a huge time saver for load-in and out.

Kenny, That reminds me - what to put in the 'box of stuff you'll need backstage' box;

Tape (3 kinds), markers, paper, flashlights and plug in lights, multi-tool, wrench, leather gloves, first aid kit, headsets, batteries, batteries, batteries, pre-show music cd ( spare)...

...Sometimes, its OK to turn down a show that isn't right for you.

Don't make the mistake of giving your audience too much credit. We call them "punters" for a reason.

I was happy to see (and remember!) a few of my quotes in that pamphlet, Mart.
