LAKE DAY Packing List + Download

LAKE DAYS are meant to be fully lived. Skiing, swimming, buzzing, napping, reading, fishing, tubing, splashing, snacking…

But without the right prep, it’s easy to fall short in multiple of those categories, or simply to set yourself up for a sunburn. When packing up my car or boat tote, there’s rarely a time when I make it to the water with all the things I meant to bring, so I started keeping a running checklist that I could reference in order to reduce the prep stress and spend more time living large on the lake.
