Submit your Ultimate KIT LIST ... here's mine
My Girlfriend and I are leaving on a rtw on July the 9th and after much research this is what I've decided to bring - remembering that I will carry anything that we both need (e.g. the medical kit/lonely planet etc.).
However, as you all know what you bring depends on where you go so here's the plan (though I'm sure it will change on the road).
Starting on July 9th we fly to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil - we then travel through Brazil, Bolivia, Peru & Chile - flying out of Santiago on the 23rd October into Auckland New Zealand for 1 month followed by Tasmania for 1 week and then Australia for 1 month. We then fly into Singapore for three nights followed by a flight to Bangkok and a 6 month stay in Asia. We plan to travel around S.E. Asia - Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia for about 2 months then travel around India and Nepal for about 2 months followed by China & Tibet for about 2 months finishing up by flying from Hong Kong back to London 12 months later.
All of these dates are only indicative and we can stay for a longer/shorter period of time in any region if we decide when we are there. It should be the trip of a life time and we are both really looking forward to it.
The Kit List:
Top Micro Fleece (Inner Shell)
Outer (top) Fleece
Running Shorts (for shorts + swimming)
2 X DC Essentials
2 X quick-drying socks
Pants X 3
Hiking Shoes (Merrel)
Coat (water proof/ wind breaker)
Quick drying T-Shirts X 2

World radio/ MP3 Player (luxury)
Digital Camera (undecided as to which type â€“ all advice welcome)
Batteries for the camera (+ some kind + charger)
Little plastic bags
1 X Phrase Book
1 X lonely planet
Let me know what you think of the list. What am I missing/what should I leave behind and why?

A money belt is also worth considering me old cherry pie.
as far as medical you might want to take a whole lot of imodium because iam afraid that a spell of the brad pitts is inevitable at some stage.
Also... digital camera? I like the Olympus Digital Stylus. Olympus has excellent lenses, and it's a weatherproof camera. You can hold it under running water (ie the rain) and it won't get damaged as long as you have the battery and memory card doors closed.
I've also found Canon's to be the easiest to use, in terms of the learning curve. Photo quality is also excellent.

...Baron, can you tell me what "imodium" is? please
For many travelers, packing ImodiumÂ® is as second nature as packing a toothbrush. They rely on ImodiumÂ® products to prevent a long-planned trip from being ruined by a bout with Traveler's Diarrhea or an unexpected intestinal flu.

Universal Packing List
Not sure about this website, they recommended I get typhoid and typhus vaccines - my destination is Spain! sounds either sloppy or paranoid to me.
But I would add:
a headlight (good for dorms as well as setting up a tent after dark)
a universal plug for sinks
travel clothes pins
some kind of twine or nylon thread
