A little bit of Everything
Luggage and bags: Pack a little bit of everything-the weather changes all the time here.
Check weather report. It can be in the high 90's in the summer and in the same week be in the high 60's, so who knows. Winter can be below zero or in the 40's.
Variety! Variety! Variety!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If travelling during the summer, break out you shorts and t-shirts UNLESS you are travelling up near Lake Michigan. Near the water it will be 20 degrees cooler than it is in downtown Milwalkee. So don't forget the sweatshirts and jeans!
Luggage and bags: When travelling with luggage I try to keep it very light and minimal (1-2 bags) with plenty of room for any souveniers I may buy.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You mainly need to gauge it with seasonal wear for clothes, rain gear (umbrella, jackets or boots), and hard wearing, durable shoes (i.e. hiking boots if hiking, walking shoes for walking, sandals for the beach, etc.)
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito repellant is a MUST in the woods or near the lakes or waterways.
Most places in Wisconsin are within distance of a doctor or medical center, but people on any sort of medication should always see their doctors before they leave on any trip to top up any necessary prescriptions they might need during their trip.
Photo Equipment: It is best to have lens paper for your cameras.
You can get camera batteries pretty much at any commercial electronics outlet, and it may be difficult to re-charge any digital camera or video batteries in some of the more rural sites, such as camp sites (if no electricity).
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Always be ready for anything, whether it is sun, rain, or tornado the old Boy Scout motto goes...'Be Prepared'.
Also, don't leave bread (in it's wrapper) lying out near your campsite if you still want some at some point of your trip. The birds will take care of that quicker than anything, and probably bears too.
Some form of tent or camper is best for camping, complete with sleeping bags (it does get cold at night, even in summer.), tarp (if have tent), cooler, storage bin, flashlights, extra rope, hammer, hatchet, lantern, Big water container, cookstove (unless really roughing it), a well-stocked first aid kit and, of course, FOOD!.
For the beach, suitable swimwear or summer/beachwear, sandals, food, drink, beach chairs, any necessary flotation devices, if there is fishing nearby any fishing equipment (like poles and a boat!), and maybe some beach fun stuff (whether it is books, games or beach balls).
Outdoor gear: You need appropriate seasonal clothes. If hiking in the woods, hiking boots are a must, and most probably long-sleeved shirts, jeans, and a cap to avoid any Lyme disease ticks, a walking stick is handy, camera gear, as well as a backpack with a first aid kit, food and water.
Miscellaneous: I have found that a 'Traveler Notebook' is great to bring along, so that I can write about what I have seen. Sometimes that takes the place of even the most beautiful of pictures you can take because you're delving into more of your feelings and emotions at a certain place.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Midwest.... cold winters, warm summers, spring and fall are pleasant. The usual. But of course, weather gets cooler and more pleasant in the summer as you go north! Oh, and there are big mosquitos near the lake in the summer! :)
Luggage and bags: Bring your guns and fishing poles boys! We guna get us some food!! That's right! Bambi's mom and dad don't stand a chance!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you need to be told what to bring hunting? Don't go hunting!
Miscellaneous: All joking aside! As sad as it is, the deer population is over abundant and if not hunted they would have a large population starve or die in car accidents. Here is a interesting fact! Vehicle Killed Deer in Wisconsin Fiscal 2000 Report was a total of 47,555 deer!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: No matter what you are doing, be prepared for the weather!! In winter it gets COLD--so dress warm--hat, gloves, jacket are a MUST. In the summer, it gets warm during the day, but still can get chilly at nite, so definitely pack a light jacket or sweater to take with you at nite.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito Repellent!!
Photo Equipment: There is so much to see and do--bring your film!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: DEFINITELY MOSQUITO REPELLENT and sunscreen too!
Luggage and bags: If its winter when you are traveling to Wisconsin, bring the kitchen sink because you may need it. It gets deadly cold for days on end. Chapstick, lotion and winter gear are a must.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Business Travel
Miscellaneous: Bring a good map also. Places tend to be spread out and its possible to get lost on the back roads or farm roads that criss cross the state.
Luggage and bags: Pack any way you like. Wisconsin people are very casual.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Plan on all types of weather. Wisconsin is known for instant weather changes. The best advice is: plan on a temparture change of +/- 15 degrees of the current forcast. Pack rain gear just in case.
Photo Equipment: SLR, disposable camera or digital camera are all good choices. I like a good quality camera and film. There is plenty to photograph.
Miscellaneous: If traveling in winter, pack a extra blanket, boots, gloves and hat. You will need it!
Luggage and bags: Winter is long, pack warm clothes. Summers are awesome with warm (not too hot) temps and easy chairs in the yard waiting for you to relax in and enjoy a beverage.
