All this stuff

I notices yesterday with the south sound gang (GREAT trip!) that I seem to have all this stuff. Throw bag, pump, deck bag with various things in it, spare paddle, paddle float, drybag w/ clothes. lunch...

It seems like the list goes on and on, and like I'm always misplacing something, or missing it. Several people had nothing but water bottles on thier decks. It sure looked cleaner...

Whats the best system for organising all this stuff? I use a gear bag for clothes, a big rubber tub for everything else, like most of us. It just seems an inordinate amount of time making sure I have this, that, and the other thing.
