Oil all Orings; Squeegee out barrels with water; fresh batteries in electronics; barrel blocking devices; fill all tanks; check laces (for cuts/broken laces are teh suck) in cleats; harness + pods; Mask lenses aren't cracked, are clean; knee and elbow pads; hat/sandanna/du rag; small towel; throw it all in your gear bag the night before so you can just "go."

EDIT: buy paint

not only works fine but is suggested if you don't have a mask cleaning solution, normal household items can and will weaken the lens, just use water.

For games I just make sure I have all my gear in order and clean, and inside my gearbag so it doesn't get damaged and I can get to what I need easily.

Not soap! Don't EVER use normal soap again! It can weaken the lens!

In the future NEVER use any cleaner other than special pb lens cleaner.
