Backpackers can usually manage to undo one mistake. But when the mistakes are compounded by other mistakes, then you are in trouble. I suppose that the moral of the story is to stop and fix one problem so that it does not become the first mistake in a series of other problems.
This is a great thread. I don't have enough experience to add a "thou shalt not", besides that, I've already accomplished a few that were listed Here's one that isn't listed (I don't think) - Pack shelter. In my case- don't take the extremely lightweight tent out of your pack to save weight. It will keep you alive if it rains and it's cold outside. Lucky for me it only spit a few drops. I think I'll take a tarp next time. Idk... I hate those little coffin tents. I suppose that they are better than a coffin though.
HMOD, thanks for that link. The Deschutes looks tempting.
