What I plan to bring for the Mindoro Multi-day Bike Trip

I'm getting more and more excited every time I think about our multi-day Mindoro bike trip next month. I just finished watching videos on YouTube and other bike touring sites on the preparation. I was going through some of the articles on BicycleTouringPro.com, read reviews about my recently bought Topeak MTX BeamRack, fantasized about having the Bob Ibex bike trailer fabricated somewhere in Cainta, and even went to Johnny Air in SM Megamall to pick up the first of four items I bought at Amazon - the Topeak MTX Dual Side Frame.

If you remember from my last post, I promised you that I'll post my list of things I'm bringing for the trip. Well, I think I'm finished. Check it out and let me know if I left out anything:
